Up in Smoke!

If you follow some of my foolishness here at Woodstown Whimsies…
you know that I have an affinity for "coffee-stained" just about anything!
Well… if you have ever asked yourself: 
"Does he ever burn anything while attempting to age it 
and give it character?"  Here's the answer:
My "Hilde" book created for the ADQ Medieval Doll Challenge…
is proof-positive; "Yes indeed… he sometimes sets the world on fire!"
When coffee-staining, I use the microwave to "set" the stain and dry 
the piece I am working on… Well, 45 seconds was a tad too long for
Hildegard's "Simple Book of Medicine"  
Alas… it certainly does look old & worn!
(click on the pic to enlarge and really see the "aging!")
Thank You "Yankee Candle" for your sage & citrus concentrated spray;
totally (more-or-less) eliminating the smell of charred paper!
Tsk! Tsk!  Happy Daze… Daryle
