Re: Eckstein no5 cigarettes label

Like you said, different techniques where used back then. I will definitely try different paper type, more blur and we'll see what result will be. :)

That is why i also posted source file, so anybody can adjust label to his needs.

Re: How to fade trousers

Well i only have to age pockets from a repro to restore an original jacket, which i am going to use for a partisan display(i am also a collector).

Nothing will go to waste, I'm going to use rest of it for making caps, patching of my other repro stuff etc.

Thank you for your input :)
