    ... and if you get thirsty you can dunk it in hot water and make a cup of coffee or beef soup! ๐Ÿ˜‹

    If you want it to look older and a bit used you could spray it with water and sprinkle some instant coffee granules on and spray again then let it soak for a while.
    You could also sprinkle bits of OXO stock cubes on it.
    I know it is starting to sound more like a restaurant than a fender.LOL!
    But you will get the different variations in colour.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Thanks for all your 'tea staining tips' (PG Tips ?...HaHa) I did take the advice given and dunked the bow fender in a cup of hot water a tea bag and left it for 20 minutes.
    I hung it to dry on the washing line (I won't tell you what my wife commented ๐Ÿ˜ณ).
    When dry it's clearly taken a nice shade of light brown and I'm happy with the result.
    The photo is the one on the bow of my crash tender and the the 'stained' one for comparison.
    I'll probably stain the crash tender one too.
    Thanks all.
    Robbob.

    The 'Tea' method should work well, I used to use it to die white tissue-covering on model aircraft so the it looked more antique linen.

    If the trails are too long and will be trimmed, try some tea on the end and see what happens. Iโ€™ve used teabags for staining, giving them a good soaking and ringing them out and using that liquid as the dye rather than water that would have been in the pot so to speak, Iโ€™ve also rubbed the teabag into the surface (taking care not to split the bag and end up with soggy tea leaves everywhere!).

    If it is synthetic then you will have to mix up some enamel paint.
    Then airbrush it on.

    Good advice.
    OK, What I'll do is put a flame ๐Ÿ”ฅ to the end of one of the tails and if it 'melts' rather than burns it will be synthetic, if not it'll be cotton (as I suspect).
    Or if it's gun cotton it will take my eyebrows off ๐Ÿ’ฅ!! Haha
