I crumple it, then spread it out again. Put it in a tray with just enough water to kind of "float" the paint (that way it doesn't get too blotchy and look painted). Then I use regular acrylic craft paints to color the paper - drop in drops of browns and yellow. Then I get to get messy - smear the paint with your fingers on the wet paper. Otherwise the paper won't really "take" the paint. Then you lay the papers out on non-stick foil (or something similar) to let them dry. Lay them flat, but they will still dry wrinkled.

Thanx,gremlin, I saw the paint, but thot it was oil paint, sorta like when you make the swirly or marbleized paper.
And who doesn't like getting messy?

Those look great! I've seen some other techniques for creating aged paper, but this one makes results that look excellent.

I do try the same. Try spray old paper using acrylic sealer and use a jute around it. But I can't made such a masterpiece. It is simply amazing and I think I can make such scrolls by taking your ideas.
