My Black Doll Sauce

Several people have asked how I age my black dolls. First, I use a very strong coffee mixture of 2 cups hot water and 1/2 cup instant coffee. Paint your doll with this stuff using a sponge brush. Don't be stingy with it. Bake the doll parts in a 200 degree oven till dry. Watch closely. When dry, let cool off a bit. Then take your leftover coffee mix (make more if you used it all) and add 1 TBSP black paint, and 1 TBSP brown paint to it. Stir it up good so its mixed well. Paint your dolly with this mix. Repeat the oven steps. After dry, sand the heck out of it with a medium grade sandpaper.
