Easy Way To Coffee Dye Paper
(Kiel, WI USA)
I love coffee dyed paper however, I'm not into dipping and drying in the oven. I tried spraying it on and wasn't happy with that either.
I got this idea to paint it on, I mix up instant coffee add some alcohol to it (found this on someone's blog) to keep it from getting moldy. Then I keep the coffee in an old squeeze ketchup bottle, put some in an old clean tuna can and use a 2" - 3" paint brush and start brushing away on paper that I've put on top of old craft packing paper.
I can do quite a few sheets at a time on my 8 ft table. when the first side is almost dry I flip and paint the other side, although if the paper is thin like copy paper you only need to do one side.
Thank you for letting me share my idea.
