Re: [BKARTS] questions



Walnut ink is very nice--and safe--for aging paper.  Or you could make
yourself a nice cup of tea and use the tea bag to rub all over the paper.
I have rubbed a small amount of vegetable oil onto paper to create a
transparent effect, although you have to be very careful because it can
stain through to other surfaces, and I don't know how good it is for the
long term--I used some for a wall hanging and I got too much on the paper
and it stained my wall.  You could try overlaying a sheet of vellum over the
pages--then you could embelish over it.  I also noticed that if you apply a
thin coat of gesso over the page, the page shows through.
