  • Several shades of watercolor paint;
  • Wax hard;
  • Harness (or other dense thin rope);
  • Button (with a relief pattern).

This is necessary to give the paper relief. In the meantime, mix a thick slurry of cocoa and warm water. Using cotton wool, wipe the pre-wrinkled paper with a cocoa mixture.Particles of what kind - powder will fill all the lines lined up on crumpled paper, moreover, it will give the letter a pleasant aroma of chocolate. To make a note of modernity, the edges can be painted with some bright color, for example, light purple. After the sheet is slightly dry, the edges need to be burned, which will give an even more vintage appearance and transfer to the atmosphere of the XIX century.
