I perform at the Texas Renaissnce Festival as Cardinal Wolsey. I'm thinking of using Extreme Burn to turn plain paper into one pound notes (I *KNOW* they didn't have paper money in the 16th century. Theatre trumps history!). This brings up a couple of questions.

I'm sure someone here has done plain paper to bill. Is there anything I need to be careful of with the use of plain paper?

Secondly: What type paper (weight paper, etc) did you get for the gimmick?

I do appreciate any hints you can give me.

I don't know the answer yet, but I am interested. I imagine it might help if the color of the paper matched the color of the borders ot the one pound notes is that right?

Let me add another, related question. Very slightly heavier stock paper - better (more durable, also to hide the ******) or worse (harder to manipulate)?

While that sounds good, some people routinely do magazine clippings to bill. I can't imagine finding enough magazine clippings with colors that matched the borders of the paper money.

The color does not to match. Use a cover from any magazine as the weight is perfect and don't worry about the border. I have been doing this for 30 years.
