I found an altered art bottle project that I wanted to try. Wasn’t sure exactly what materials were used in the project, so I came up with my version (tutorial for project will come later).
First things first is, I needed aged fabric strips. So I made some using muslin strips, and instant coffee.
Preheat your oven to300. Then cut your strips of fabric, approximately 1 1/2″ x 12″. Cut 5-6 pieces.
Using your hand just give it a toss in the bowl so the granules will get onto the other fabric strips. Let sit a few minutes. Then shake off excess granules.
You can dye a large piece of fabric the same way,if you want it lighter use less coffee, and darker use more.
Check back later to see what I made with my aged fabric strips.
