Ageing ripstop nylon

I'm building a gaff rigged "J" class yacht and just purchased white ripstop nylon from my local kite shop. After explaining what I was using it for he asked if I was going to weather the cloth to look like old canvas.

I didn't think about it at the time but but it would probably be a great idea except I didn't think you could colour ripstop nylon. It's waterproof isn't it? Does anyone have any experience with this?
