I scan in old photo's and then print them on a light ecru colored card stock. Then I use chestnut brown chalk ink to edge the photos. I am surprised (in real life) how well this technique works. Better than using sepia colored ink to print them. I had taken a photo of my mom's family in to a professional photographer to have printed up. I asked them to be as close to the original as possible. What I ended up with was a shiny black and white copy. So I started to experiment on my own and am extremely happy with the results.
