We love simple crafts so today we propose you a very simple tutorial. We are going to make parchment paper by doctoring up a simple sheet of paper!!!
- Coffee or tea (very strong, dark)
- Sheet of paper, any size you want
- Candle or lighter
- Frying pan and stove
Step by Step
Crumple a sheet of paper and then spread it out so that it is as smooth as possible.
With a piece of cotton dipped in coffee or tea, dye the folds of the paper. It is preferable that you do this step with great delicacy. Add color little by little, and as you prefer you can always add more. You can use several different infusions to give it various shades.
Let the leaf dry completely, you can accelerate this process with a fan or a hair dryer. When it is dry, use a candle to burn the edges of the paper, but do it very slowly, as it can burn too much and deform the leaf completely. Try, as much as possible, to do it in a sink or sink and, of course, avoid having flammable objects around.
Lightly burn some sections of the paper in a frying pan. To do this, place the paper in the pan over medium heat and press down in a few spots to darken those areas.
There you have it, a perfect antique scroll that you can easily make at home for any letter or craft you want! It gives an amazing result, maybe the photos don’t do it the justice it deserves, we recommend you try it at home and then let us know what you think.
