Let's start of with a really neat writing tutorial by Elizabeth Haidle.

Materials needed: pointy stick, lemon juice, toaster/toaster oven/electric stove burner, thin paper

Steps: dip your branch into the juice, write your script on the paper, let dry, hold over heat source of choice (try to judge a non-burnable distance) and watch your script slowly appear in darkening tones of brown. Experiment with different toasting times to get lighter/darker script & yellow to dark-brown hues. Fun! Easy!
