The fine art of creating leaf skeletons has been around since the period of the Ming Dynasty in China. Leaf skeletons are elegant and intricate designs created by distilling a leaf down to its very essence.
I produced these delicate designs, with require patience, trial and error, and even a little luck. But once I masered this technique by myself, the results are absolutely amazing.
