These look amazing. They make me want to buy more Outlaw products just so I can use them.

Cody and anyone else whos handy at aging stuff, would you suggest using te* stain**g and Cof*e* staining on the same item?


There is no problem mixing the two, but be aware that both contain elements that can make paper stiff and brittle over time. Not such a problem with single cards or individual sheets of paper, but it can become an issue with books and other paper products that will be bent repeatedly (however slightly) in the course of normal handling.

If going with a 'drinkable' st@in, use a very heavy stock of paper (at least 100 pound, 14 pt. cardstock) and try this before st@ining: After printing and cutting out your image,
a) Rub the paper edge-on against the sharp edge of a counter or table until the cardstock becomes soft all along the edge and begins to look a little feathery.
b) use medium-to-fine-grit sandpaper and rub (lightly) all over the face and back until the colour just begins to lighten. Rub off some areas more heavily than others (always being careful not to rub away the information you need, of course).
c) fold one corner over (dog-ear) and crease heavily. Do this back and forth a couple of times until the corner is a bit flimsy and 'wounded' looking across the crease.
d) Now take some cellophane tape and rub it down hard against one part of the image (perhaps on the back) really burnish it on (use the back and edge of a spoon). Let the tape sit for a while (half an hour to overnight) and then peel it off again, trying to tear up a bit of image and paper as you do (just a bit!) Repeat if necessary and/or put tape over the area again but overlapping it at a slight angle to pick up ink/paper in a more interesting (and random-looking) pattern.

Now use your favourite morning beverage (or a caffeinated combination of the two) on the paper. You will discover that the 'worked' areas will pick up more colour and consequently look rougher and more random.

Choose your cardstock carefully, too. Paper with texture is better than smooth. Paper without a coating is better than paper with.

As this is a printable gift (that Cody, what a guy!), you have the opportunity to experiment. Print up a few copies and try several ideas using the effects you like best to create your very personal object d'arte.

Best,

Thanks, Prof. BC. I have a problem with aging these too, but your step by step tutorial should make it almost self-working (maybe I can train my cat to do it?)

Cats are best. Dogs tend to lap up the st@in and become hyperactive at which point they are worse than useless.

Absolutely gorgeous .. makes me want to own these props if for no other reason to add the cr*bs. Actually the Teller is on my horizon. I'll send you an email once I have purchased it. Great work!

Thank you for that, Prof BC.
I can think of few people whom I would recommend as highly when it comes to... Well, anything.
Lets just call him Midas. He doesn't leave much to be said does he?

Take his advise to heart, it costs you nothing and is worth its weight in gold!
And his words carry weight indeed...

But I must disagree on the point of cats vs dogs!
My dog likes to age paper... Even paper you don't necessarily want aged.
Never leave your unfinished projects on the floor, a hard life lesson indeed.

I just ordered the WA. Maybe I should email outlaw and see if I can get the password before my order arrives.

Looks fantastic color laser printed onto linen paper and mounted to board stock! Working on the ageing now.
