OT- parchment question

Hi guys, I would like to made a parchment for my girlfriend for her birthday the 27th of july. I would like to made a poem and put it on it. I really don't know where I can made it and if I can. I've tried Google, but find nothing so far. If someone can help me, it would be very appreciate.

Do you want it to look like this?



If so, you may have to make it yourself by putting items in a blender, then pour it out to dry and run a blow torch over it.

A lot of craft/supply stores will carry 'parchment' but it may not be what you're looking for. Either it will be mylar, which is too translucent and difficult to write on or spotty brown regular paper. Authentic parchment is made from goatskin.

My youngest did something parchment related for a school project a few years back. She's on her way to work but I'll see if I can reach her.

Maybe try a place that does wedding invitations and formal announcements? They might sell the parchment by itself. I think big art or craft stores sometimes carry it too.

It seems the phone is off. I can't quite remember other than a mess in the house, but I think they treated papier mache with something to have that look. It looked very authentic, I remember being impressed but other than that.

If you'd like to know what she did, PM your e mail adress and I'll see if she can send you instructions tonight. I won't see her as I'm heading into Mtl for the Als game .

The best way to avoid parchment is to do a lot of drinkage.

Or maybe I didn't get the question.

OK, the young'un called. It was quite awhile ago, and she doesn't have a recipe lying around but what she remembered doing was doing a search on the word 'papyrus' and finding something there. She seemed to think that flour and newspaper was involved. Good luck.

If you don't want to go to the hassle of making it yourself, just go to an art store and look for sheets of archival drawing paper(not white or newsprint).

Yeah, that's what I was getting at. More of a papyrus paper than parchment.

The method:

Take a sheet of white paper, soak it with water, and crumple it up into a ball. Then, carefully unfold it. Leave it to dry. When it dries, it is covered in fine wrinkles that make it look aged.

You may want to carefully tear the edges of the paper, to make it look even more tattered.

To give the paper the right color, stain it with tea. Use a cotton ball to apply the tea unevenly across the paper. Apply more tea to the edges of the paper, so that it gets darker near the edges and lighter near the center.

Some more ideas for variations on this method. For example, using coffee or soy sauce as an alternative to tea.

Just to clarify for people, the technique is called 'tea-bagging'. Your middle school teacher had you tea-bagging.

Tea-bagging. Ouch. Sounds like a CIA interrogation technique.

I have a tea bag phobia. Their wet texture, their smell, my parebts are tea drinkers and there always seemed to be a tea bag in the sink when I was a kid. Hate tea bags.

Is this personal experience talking or just a shot in the dark?

I'm just wondering. Didn't Darz go through something similar a while back?

The story I heard was that he was accidentally scalded while being whipped in a traditional Finnish sauna. They definitely take water boarding to strange new heights in Thunder Bay.
