    Default Weathering/aging burlap

    Hello everyone!

    I have an awesome burlap cloak for a grim reaper costume and I've ran it through th ewasher a couple times to get the endges nice and frayed. What would you suggest I use to age it and make it look a little less "new"?

    Thanks!

    When I make primitives..I soak the clothes in coffee, wring them out and dry them..dont rinse, then there is always the bury them trick..but ya have to leave them under the dirt for months.

    Do like the guys in the military do with their ghillie suits. Take it out and run in through the gravel, dirt, mud and just thrash it. Hang it up like a carpet and beat on it for a while.
