I was elated when I searched the Internet and found this technique to create the Grunge look on fabric. With my paper creations, I have mastered the look and love it! Not sure how to explain what Grunge is, but it's like a distressed, dirty worn look full of character and the beauty of aged time.
Here's what you do - add the following ingredients in a glass bowl and microwave for 1-2 minutes or it may be easier to heat the water and pour that over the other ingredients.
1/2 cup instant coffee
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon ginger (I used allspice since I didn't have ginger)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup water
Use a sponge applicator and blot the material - I used a muslin type fabric.
Several of the pieces of fabric I just dunked in the liquid and squeezed out.
