I was going to rust, organic dye, bury, etc., some more fabrics to get a really beat up surface appropriate for the abandoned pages. Then I got an inspiration: disperse dye. Haven't done it in years. I tried it on both synthetics and silk. I like both but think it will be more permanent on the synthetics and more easily ripped up, burned and otherwise abused! I liked the color on both fabrics and now will test the silk for permanence.
