I have some fondant fall leaves in this picture:

I dabbed separate fall colors on fondant, and kneaded it until it just blended. Then I rolled it out, and used the Wilton small leaf cutter. I used the back of a butter-knife to imprint the veining. I dried it in a slightly curved shape so they looked like "drifting" leaves.

You could also dust them later with various powdered colors used for gum-paste, though many of those are not FDA approved, yet (though non-toxic).

Mine aren't super-realistic, but perhaps another member who does more gumpaste work could help you with that! thumbs_up.gif

Hope this helps.
