Hi Rajpriya, there is no need of any preservatives this dried leaves u can keep for years .My paintings were done when i was in school (almost 30 yrs back).Still it has not damaged or spoiled .I have covered this painting with butter paper.

Rajjamma, thank you very much for going through all my paintings and art works and appreciating the same .As rightly mentioned by u paintings gives me relaxing feeling as i am very very busy with work .Handling too many things at a time. Frankly speaking most of the paintings are done long long ago very recently i have only done the egg-shell paintings .But promising u that i will start painting once again

In school times I used to pick up big almost dried leaves and keep it in between two pages of rough books for days to get dried skeleton of leaves. We can wash and keep it in hot water only for few seconds and then dry with some towel and then keep it under the sun for few days you will get nice dry skeleton of leaves which are ready for painting.
