OH! How I love my mistake yes that is correct. I did a ooops and discover this awesome technique. So sometime mistake is the best thing that can happen in life, craft room and such, today is the perfect example.
This is so the easiest age/varnish copper technique.
here how it goes
-Emboss a piece of Copper Foil paper
-Using black archival and a sponge, tab some black in into the emboss copper foil paper
-using a paper towel wipe the ink off where you wish to have it age. This will remove the copper and give the look of tarnish/age copper. Yes that simple
It look like I have some silver but I don’t it is only the copper that get the different color with the archival ink. I bet many will ask will it work with other ink and my answer is that I have is I have NO clue I didn’t try any other ink 🙂
I have a video for you that you can find at the bottom of my blog post today on my blog HERE. ***If you are getting my post by e mail some server will NOT include the video so make sure to visit my blog to get all detail or you can always find my video on my You Tube Channel.

Love this & your tutorial. Can I just use the Basic Black ink if I don't have the Archival?
