Leaf Impressions

Did you know…?
Leaf print 1
The staining you see is from tanins and the decomposing pigments in the leaf. The inside of a teacup gets stained with very similar tanins if it is not washed thoroughly. These leaf impressions will eventually fade as the tanins are broken down by sunlight and washed or worn away by rain and passing feet.
