I'm trying do dye some paper that I printed a story on for my scrapbook to make it look aged. The ink is running. Any suggestions? How long should I wait till the ink completely dries?

Try putting the tea in a spray bottle & just misting the paper. (Make the tea pretty strong)

RE: tea dye

I've repeated that same mistake several times. LOL! I think if you're going to use some aging technique that involves water, it's best to dye or stain your paper first, maybe iron it flat, and then print onto it. Let me know if that works, 'cause I haven't tried it yet!
