For this tutorial, you’ll need autumn leaves collected on a walk or even from the garden, a thick piece of paper, a cloth, a glue stick and Signo Broad gel rollerballs! Easy handling so children can use them easily.
Of course, a touch of creativity will be required!
2nd step: Prepare your leaves
Before using the autumn leaves as your canvas, wipe them with a cloth the remove any dirt and humidity. It’s much more practical for drawing and colouring!

Then, take your sheet of paper and use your glue stick to stick down the cleaned and dried autumn leaves. Position them however you want!

Take your Singo Broad pens, draw the little forest animals on your autumn leaves.
Our gel ink rollerballs are perfect for this step: they’re very smooth and will slide across the page and their colours give perfect coverage, for a striking result!
