A friend of mine asked me how to age plastic... I've heard about something with coffee or tea... Can you give me a tutorial or something? Couldn't find nothing on projectguitar

A tutorial isn't really needed for something like this.

Basically, brew some really strong coffee(or tea, but coffee works better) and then leave your plastic bits in it. It also helps to add some vinegar or soy sauce, the acid somehow helps.

probably makes it more porus. if your doing a qick guard you probably need to put the coffe or tea into a baking tray or something

I wouldn't suggest using soy sauce. I think Algee used it for his EVH relic build and said it kept rubbing off on his hands and smelled terrible. I could be wrong though. But coffee and tea should do the trick.

^It smells bad while you're doing it, but its fine once you rinse it off.

Ohh yeah... it's been a while since a looked through that thread so I wasn't too sure. Thanks for not being a jerk when proving me wrong btw, very rare to see that in these parts.

It's fairly simple:
1: Get a pie tin (or something similar)
2: Brew some tea/coffee, and put into tin (I like the looks of tea better)
3: Put plastic in tin with tea...wait..take out

The color shade depends on the amount of time you leave it in, I imagine you leave it in for around 12 hours or something.. (I made that number up)

It's better with no teeth, trust me. Much fewer scars on my penis now that I've switched from seniors in high school to senior citizens.
