    Default Aging/Yellowing paper

    Anybody have any tricks for yellowing paper? I'm trying to get the "Wanted" poster look on some Arches paper...I'm looking for a subtle effect.




    It should be noted that my little brother already suggested to "piss on it", thanks though

    Make a bath with watercolors, tea or coffee.

    How are you printing?

    dirt.
    more so from areas under/around trees.
    i've distressed/aged quite a bit a furniture through the years and once you get the feel for it and the right mixture, you can age anything, including paper.
