My first painting with purely coffee on heavy grade watercolor paper. Even with the paper thickness, with coffee being such an excessively wet media, it still warped my paper badly and with my scanner broken, I tried to get the best photo I could with as bendy as it was. It was really interesting painting with coffee and it has a cool rimmed effect when it dries. It's not smooth at all with blending, but still I think the end result is really cool looking.

Thank you! Coffee is really interesting to paint in and has a unique rimmed look when it dries. It's not much for blending or getting smooth gradients, but I think it's what makes it look so unique. It's a surprisingly forgiving medium too. Even after it dries, you can lift the coffee back off the paper for the most part by rubbing with a wet brush or damp paper towel.

That's so awesome! :happybounce:
I've painted with blueberry juice before and that was quite fun! At first the picture looked very violet, but then when it dried it went blue! I want to do more paintings with random things :eager:
When you go to cafes you should just bring some water colourpaper with you and pay for your coffee with a painting! :dummy:

Ooh that's interesting. I've never thought of blueberry juice and it being concentrated enough to paint with it. And a cafe might not have coffee strong enough lol I had to use instant coffee crystals and use a whole single serve packet in a few ounces of hot water to make it dark enough lol

Thank you!

I actually just got the juice from some frozen blueberries by squishing them around for a bit after they thawed out :D although I only did a small painting, so I didn't need very much.
Haha I didn't know you needed that strong coffee!
I bet your painting smells nice~ :heart: (I don't like the taste of coffee, but strangely enough I do like the smell):dummy:

Yes, I know. ^~^ I'm just still astonished at how much work you must have done to get so far with your art. Kudos.

Wow! I really like the effect of this one. The expression is fantastic and I love the way the highlights in the hair look. Coffee sounds quite adventurous. I think I'd prefer to drink it than paint with it, though. :giggle: It's amazing the kind of effects that can be achieved just through experimenting with random media. I wonder who first came up with the idea to paint with coffee?

Thank you! Yes, all coffee. The instant crystals kind since I can concentrate it and make it stronger than you can brew it.
