    Regarding the Leaf Fall Spray Art project: Would dried or pressed leaves work instead of fresh leaves?

      Hi Kathy! It seems like it would work with pressed leaves, let us know if you give it a try and how it turns out :)

      Hi Kaylee,

      We purchased liquid neon spray paint using the link above in the Materials list. That is how the bright colors are achieved.
