Hi there! Name's InevitableSyzygy; I go by many names. I write, I tabletop RPG, I draw, I create, and I science periodically. Mostly, I look for new ways to create dramatic and intriguing new props for my tabletop campaigns; I mostly run Call of Cthulhu and FATE, and I play several others. My players hate me because I give them nightmares and they believe I may or may not actually be an avatar of Nyarlathotep.
  • I've also had great success with using a lighter to singe and lightly burn paper props - the ashy charcoal burns in spots and burnt edges can make a magic piece of paper or old spellbook page look as if it has been around for a very, very long time and could not burn for some arcane reason or another. I'd recommend being outside or near an open window if you do this, though - I accidentally set my smoke alarm off while doing this once!

  • I like the green tea effect best. It looks yellowed, and I think if you put it on something meant to be a book page, it would look crisp and clean but old. It's nice to see how different materials affect the final outcome of the piece, and definitely something a lot of Instructables DON'T show. Thanks for the tips!

  • I really like this idea... And it would come in handy for the old tome prop I'm making.
