The beautiful colours that you get if you allow the tea bag to stand for several days will astound you.
The first photo shows the finished paper and you can see that I have rubbed "Goldfinger" gold on the bottom section and bronze in the middle section and on the top and the sides I have left them untouched.
The first thing that you have to do is save all your tea bags after making yourself a cuppa--but don't squeeze all the water out or if you do then dunk it again in some more water.
It is important to start with a wet tea bag.
Now stand them up to allow them to dry( like little soldiers) with the tea leaves still inside because this is where the colour comes from.
I then proceed to use the same method to make the paper as shown in the previous post but I lightly sprayed Walnut ink on these to get the extra brown colour that I was after.
I have also used the tea bags in an art quilt which I blogged about here
