  1. Iron it, crumple it, tear it, burn it, rub it, distress it.
    Makeup works, just press it after, you can put it under a weight or in a heavy book, even iron it a final time to bring it back to paper form.

  2. Scorch it with a (dry) steam iron set to “linen” — just don’t reach 451 degrees Fahrenheit or all bets are off. Be careful. Specks of powdered rust would also suggest ‘foxing,’ where iron present in the water used in the paper’s manufacture eventually oxidized. BTW, at the 1985 Midwest Museum Conservators’ conference in Nashville, Tenn., I saw a demonstration of a vacuum-mist machine for removing foxing from old paper. Quite impressive.

  3. Splatter some paint on it, maybe some dark shades. Wait until it’s dry, start scrunching the paper up (or fold it into a lot of pieces and unfold it then fold it a different way again).
