Keep the edge of the paper near the candle flame and let it burn until you get the shape you want, then completely blow the fire on the paper carefully, like shown in the photo.

Step 3: Burning all the edges of the paper

Repeat the last step with the whole paper and you will get something like shown.

Step 4: Creating the ancient effect

Keep the paper just above candle flame and move the whole paper above the candle, so that the soot of the flame makes a design on the whole paper, like shown in th photo.

Now write some ancient Egyptian language (or any other ancient language you like) on the paper using your black gel pen or sketch pen.

I copied the language from a picture I found on the net, you can also do the same.

So, your awesome Ancient Egyptian Manuscript is ready. Now you can put it on your wall and show it off to your friends. :)

It would be cool if you found an alphabet translation thingy or something so then you could write your own stuff :)
