Weathering a Paper Prop with Coffee

If you’ve ever wanted to weather a paper prop — a treasure map, an “ancient” scroll, or an old page from a book — this transformation by Replica Prop Forum (RPF) user JesperW is for you. He made a page from a book in Doctor Who for his daughter; specifically the last page of The Angel’s Kiss written by River Song. He referenced an actual book (pictured above alongside the page) to get an idea of how to add texture and weathering. This is how he transformed it:

The coloration is mostly just coffee (Merrild instant, for anyone taking notes) and tea. Did some splotching using a brush, and also manipulated the wet paper a bit to make the coffee/tea water “pool” along the edge to make it a wee bit darker. For paper I tried with some unbleached letter paper, and another kind which was dyed slightly yellow – but in the end the best result, I think, came with regular 80g white inkjet paper. Pulp novels are printed on crap paper, after all.
