Notre Dame Leaf Cut by Luyomi333 Notre Dame Leaf Cut by Luyomi333
I'm experimenting a bit with leaf cutting. But the new semester is starting soon. I didn't create much this year, sorry.

I'm still in the trial and error process to find out how to treat the leaves the best to get the most precision when cutting. I really learned to appreciate the superiority of paper these last days.

Note: This one is a catlalpa leaf drypressed for around 4 days, then cut in around 5 hours and then drypressed further.

This is a beautiful piece of work.
Dried leaves can be difficult to cut sometimes because, unlike paper, the leaves have a physiological architecture that may hinder the actual cutting process. I do think, however, you did a wonderful job here.

Keep it up. You're doing great.

This is truelly stunning!
I did some leaf-cutting a few months ago, but found it truelly frustrating as the tiny leaves I used kept tearing. Did you cut this by hand, or laser? The circles are in such perfect shape!
Astonishing details! Very well done! :)

By hand with an X-Acto knife equivalent. The trick to cutting circles is: use a template for guiding; try to cut it in one go; don't apply to much force, but rather be more wasteful with new sharp blades.

Thanks for the info!
Do you use a knife that rotates?

Haha! Ok. then I guess not.
It's one where the blade is on this tiny ball, which makes it able to spin, so that you can cut perfect flowy curves etc.
