Well - evidentiary failure was an option after I got creative with some Flory washes, Minwax stain and Tamiya acrylic paint (what was I thinking!). The sails turned out a very nice shade of brown - and I just don’t think the Black Sea Russian navy had brown sails lol. So unless I’m wrong about that I’m going to order another set.

That's an interesting idea. I've already ordered the replacement sails, but I'll try it.

Ok - I tried that and it did make the turpentine brown, but didn't do much to the sail color. Maybe if I had a couple of gallons of the stuff, but I don't.

Have you thought about soaking them in coffee or tea?
