Coffee {Tea} Staining

Saturday, August 24, 2013

 
Welcome back!
 
 
 
 This time I experimented with coffee and a few materials.  I used some material and resist paper that came in a Faber Castell Gelato Kit.  I soaked half of the material in a cup of coffee for about 2 hours.  I brushed the coffee onto the resist paper and let it soak in.  After the material was mostly dry I brushed some coffee onto my text stamp and 'stamped' the coffee text onto the banners.
I also brushed some coffee onto the Heidi Swapp Resist Heart.  I liked the results, but not for this project.  I'll save it for later! 
 
 
 
 
A fun technique!
