Evan’s Pirate Picnic Invite

Materials: paper, twine, cake sprinkles tube

I made a couple of sketches, scanned them, added text in Photoshop then printed them out. I found the pirate text through google. I tried doing the stain with coffee and tea but didn’t work. What worked was diluting brown/yellow ochre mixture of acrylic paint and sweeping it using a broad brush on the already wet paper. Dry.¬† I then run the edges of the paper quickly across a lit stove burner. Fold, roll and slip inside mini-tube. Tie the twine into the punched tag. Hot glue it if it slips. Voil√† an authentic looking pirate invite.
