 There is nothing in the judges handbook that tells you what to do with leaf

Does this mean you can mask a discoloration on a leaf with a green marker,
Surely not.
I cannot name names but a very experienced judge posted me privately and said
that he/she thought it would be illegal to refrigerate leaves to make them
