So my mothers Christmas present this year will be a art project of fall leaves guled to a big painters canvase but I need to know what would be the best thing to glue them down with and what should I put over them from "going bad" or turning brown and crunchy.
Thanks

I used acrylic medium one time to attach leaves to some rag paper and it completely protected them. They where small leaves I just dipped them in the medium so all sides where covered and stuck it to the paper. Two years later they still looked good. I tried to find the collage but it is hidden somewhere in my house.

Acrylic medium and mod podge both work well for that. Just be sure both sides of the leaf is coated.
