Description

And my first texture submition.
Hope to be useful to anybody.

UPDATE: Uploaded the full-size version for those who need it bigger.

NOTE: I will not reply normally here, but quite surely will comment in the deviation you used it. Anyway, be patient, I have not much time recently, so it can take a pair of weeks.

(This is stock, BUT the most of my gallery is NOT).
You can get this stock freely, but please be nice and credit me (refering to my sagawa.deviantart.com site) and leave a link so I can take a look at what you've done with it. I am curious. :)

Oldened paper.
Explanation about how I did it (taken from a talk with ~diminuta ):

Well, I just grabbed a normal new A4 80g/m^2 sheet, one of those for xerox purpose and I followed an oldening process:
1) Rub the paper with sand-paper, just to erode it, specially the corners.
2) Impregnate it well with hot tea.(Like Amelie). With a thick brush I added more in some points. I let it dry and, from time to time, I added some more tea here and there.
3) I folded up some corners and somewhere else.
4) Dry it in the microwave (yes, the microwave). It makes the paper a little stiff. (And, obviously, dries fast)
5) Scan.
6) Submit.

I made it to some sheets to send a little curious letter. :p

Papel envejecido.
Explicación en español (sacada de una conversación con ~diminuta ):

Pues cogí un folio A4 nuevecito de 80g/m^2 de los de fotocopia de toda la vida y lo sometí a un proceso de envejecimiento:
1) Rascado suave con lija, para erosionarlo y gastarlo, sobre todo algunas esquinas.
2) Con té caliente, lo impregné bien, bien. (Como Amelie). Con un pincel grueso le di más en algunas zonas. Fui dejando secar y de vez en cuando, le añadí a más en algunas zonas.
3) Doblado de algunas partes.
4) Secado en microondas (sí,sí, en microondas o en horno). Eso hace que se reseque algo el papel y adquiera cierta cualidad "acartonada", algo rígida. (Y, obviamente, seca rápido)
5) Escanear.
6) Subir.

Lo hice con varios folios para mandar una carta un poco curiosa. :p
