Coffee Paper Tips

by Yvonne van Loon
(Netherlands)

I just made a whole batch of coffee paper and used a flat iron to dry them quickly. I saw that on YouTube I think. I did spray mine in the sink, so easy clean up and less time consuming. I also let some dry overnight to get a different look. My coffee solution is going in a large cleaned big spray bottle. You get lovely results and have more control if you spray. I do use hot water rather then cold.

Coffee stain and walnut stain
by: Karen

I found some walnut crystals in my stash. So I proceeded to stain paper with a batch that I mixed. Did some coffee stain too. Outdoors on the deck, on a line, much like Carol in the previous comment. Love the coffee stain, but the walnut stain is fabulous. Worked well. Put large paper beneath the hanging smaller pieces and the droplets stained that as well. A great and successful day of staining.

Coffee Paper Tips
by: Jennifer

I grab my page as soon as it comes out of the oven and then put it in a press -currently a stack of books but working towards an actual press :-). I find that they don't need any ironing after that - if necessary, a bit of burnishing gets rid of any other creases. This works even with the paper that I crumple up and then stain.

Coffee dyeing
by: Carol

During the lovely hot weather we were having here in Canada, I hung my papers on a line, spayed them with the coffee solution and let them dry in the hot sun and warm breezes. I was quite pleased with the outcome.
