  • Ageing paper

    Ive been trying to age paper, quite succesfully.
    I put water in a container, then added coffee granules, put the paper/card in and left it over night.
    I found that if the water is quite shallow it makes amazing shapes on teh card surface, almost giving it a border.
    A couple of pieces even looked like they had a weeping willow branch on it, it looked quite dreamy and could be incorporated into a design.
    Also I saw on a programme, throwing coffee or maybe it was salt granules on the wet card gives a foxing effect, like bits of mold.

    I just thought Id share that with you.Coffee paper smells lovely.

    Do any of you use teabags to age paper?Does it have the same effect?

    I have been 'tea-bagging' a photocopy of my dad's call up papers this afternoon!! They look great and very realistic.Tea and coffee are great 'agers'!! Goodness knows what they do to our insides!!

      does that mean if you drink loads of tea and coffee you age more quickly??!!

      I do think I'm gonna have to try this though, and see what I end up with, sounds interesting
