Instant Coffee Staining Technique

This technique is a way to age paper with something accessible at a grocery store or a dollar store.  It creates some dark patches where the crystals dried on the paper.  

Paper - copy paper
Water in a spray bottle
Instant coffee
Spray box - Plastic box


1.  Place paper in the spray box.  I use a plastic box with a flat bottom.
2.  Soak the paper with water.  I used a spray bottle of water.
3.  Sprinkle the coffee granules on the paper.
4.  Let dry.
