Okay, now we are going to show you how you can paint without the paint brush. Get a piece of paper and choose some leaves that you would be happy to work with. First of all, I am choosing this lonely little leaf and I put it into the yellow. Okay. Okay, don't worry if you make a little bit of mess. Okay. And then you press it on your paper and try to press the paint out from underneath your leaf. And then you carefully lift up your leaf and then you got a kind of shape. Now, as you can see, there are quite a lot of paint left so you can try it somewhere else too. And let's repeat the action. Okay, press it down really carefully. Very good. Okay and then lift it up again. And we got a different shape. Now let's put down the painted leaf. Good. Now let's choose something else. I am choosing this spine bit and I actually put it in the green color and you press it on again. Obviously, it's going to have a different kind of shape.
