Research for a film project for school, "The year 2000 as imagined in 1900"
I aged the 300g watercolor paper by soaking it in a delicious mix of instant coffee and tea (the really cheap supermarket brand stuff, I'm not gonna drink it after it infuses in my sink) with an extra dose of water I cooked pasta in (olive oil leaves some lovely greasy stains).
Try it yourself, it stinks really bad but it makes some lovely textures you can draw on, or scan and use in Photoshop!
