Tea Staining My “Shield of Words”

 

Soaking tea leaves

I got loose black tea from the Co-op this morning and have been soaking it all day.

This evening, using a paintbrush I tested it out to see how dark it is and much it bleeds.

The test pieces below are still wet.  The tea staining is pretty dark right now, but it will lighten up as it dries.  I’m expecting I’ll have to give it a few coats.  I’ll know more tomorrow.
