I was wondering how you'd make a "coffee stain" and an "ink splatter" in Photoshop. Yes, I am on a holiday in my head. :D Any PS wizards willing to give it a shot?

Well, here's an ink splatter. A coffee stain? Whats a stain look like, you know? Just apply color...blood, ink, coffee, mustard, etc.

That looks pretty good. You know the coffee stains that always appear on pages when a mug stood on it for too long. That's the kind of stain I'm after. I'm just interested in the variations that'll come up in this thread.

i s'pose best way to do it would be to make an actual coffee stain on a peice of paper and then try and simulate the effect in photoshop! Just play around using artistic effects. If u want to get the shape right, u can always scan ur coffee stain in and then work around that!

Yep; one could scan in a stain on a white piece of paper and choose a suitable blending mode (such as overlay) from the layers palette.

I agree with sketchess, it's better if you make an actual coffee stain on a piece of paper and scan it. Then, play it in photoshop.

The Photoshop plug-in Xenofex does coffee stains:
