Hi all, needed to dye my paper fro the save the dates to make them look old and worn. I tried using ea to begin with but the results just werent dark enough.
Here is the process of the tea dying in picks for you all. I you after a sublte worn look then tea is great, well the metod i used is great for light staining.
I wanted it a bit darker, so I put a few tea spoons of coffee into the tea mix and voila, i got it slightly darker.
put tea in the sink and pour in about 1.5 liters of boiling water
stir and leave to steep for aprox 5mins
the tea solution
submerge the paper and let it sit for about 2 mins this is the coffee solution
the coffee stained papers hanging to dry
the coffee stained paper dried
hope you enjoyed this paper staining tut, i will put up the tut for how i use these next 🙂
