  16. Other: Need tips on staining fabric

    Halloween Props
    Does anybody have good tips for how to age/stain fabric? I'm thinking more like spotty stains and not a complete garment change. Is spraying strong tea/ coffee the best way to go? Will it run/drip or be absorbed? Does cotton/polyester/synthetics all stain differently? I need to do clothes, but...

    Halloween Props
    For all of you that make pvc frame figures with masks as prop heads. What do you guys do for necks? To give it some girth and color. I have used the shirt collars or other pieces of clothes to cover the pvc neck. But I want to try something different. Any ideas are welcome.
