This is the basic stain that I use on all my creations.
I have a LARGE plastic bowl that I mix everything in.
In this bowl you will mix the following in:
4-5 cups BOILING WATER (you want this water hot hot hot)
1/2 cup instant coffee
a good “dash” of vanilla….. I give about 4-5 shakes!
Take a wooden spoon and mix it all well. You want the coffe to be all disolved.
I take a piece of cheesecloth and place the following spices:
cinnamon sticks broken into small pieces(about 5-7 pieces)
whole pieces of nutmeg slightly grated(2-3)
whole cloves(small handful)
Then I take my spoon and push the cheesecloth UNDER the coffee……let the spoon hold the baggie there for at least 1/2 hour.
(Take the spices out and DRY IN SUNSHINE WELL. You can then reuse them a couple times in your next batches of brew! )
Take a sponge paintbrush and you can then start applying the stain to your creations. I like to let them then dry in the sun.
You can also spray this mixture onto creations as well.
