We can’t just sit in idle way on our butts, right? DAMN RIGHT! So that’s not really well thought or planned idea We both with ~enigmaticworld are kinda fans of self made papers, self dyed papers, custom sketchbooks etc. Nothing wrong with buying supplies, but it is fun to make then yourself. They become a bit more personal this way Sooo, I really like “tea” stained papers. It’s not really about tea itself, more of a texture and color. Only sketchbooks with similar color that I could find were from recycled paper. Nothing against them here, it’s just not what I was looking for. So I asked ~enigmaticworld “wanna join me in crazy art experminent my friend? 8)”. FUN. We made big box of tea, coffee and ink soup. After that we dunked sketchbook in and let it sink. Then page after page after page we started dying it. Some cool patterns appeared as you can see!
As for the soup itself, we didn’t keep any particular proportions. What we added here is 5 teabags, two instant coffees and couple of brown ink drips. Just play around!
P.S. Sorry for typos! Or possible blabber!
I've been looking for making a "Ye Olde" Kind of paper look and this is the best I've found so far (Other than finding real Vellum; which I wouldn't think would be as effective or as cheap for making a whole book)
If I were to use inks, though, how much should I put in the container? I only tried it with tea bags today.
No ale jak go skończe to koniecznie wypróbuję Twój sposób na zupkę :3 Będzie zabawa!
Dzięki za tuta
Pirackie scrole są wtedy soooł izy osom ;D
But doesn't the paper ripple very much? I think it has to be kind of a heavy paper to not ripple/ rip apart?
