aging-coloring paper

does any body know the exact recipe for making coloring for making 18
century paper in books look brown when repairing pages--suppose to be the
british museums formula--you take sugar mix it with water boil it down till
it turns black, to a thick syrup or crust, cool then mix with water and use
like a dye.  I know that there are a couple of other things to add but can't
remember.  also will this way of coloring paper harm other pages in the book
by leaching out?---I just used it-just the sugar and it works perfect for
giving the right color to the paper(laid paper)
