I've been loving tea staining. I crocheted a few minis and plopped them in a bowl of hot water with a tea bag thrown in.
Then I forgot about them. When I finally remembered the bowl of patchy tea (I didn't stir it at all), my minis were well and truly stained! They turned from creamy white to a deep natural with darker patches of beige here and there. I actually LOVED the effect. So much so that I made one of the minis into a lace pendant necklace! It is now in the shop for sale.
