You can have coffee in your cake, in your gelato, and coffee designs in your art deco mug, but have you ever thought about coffee on your walls? Artists around the world have begun dipping their brushes in coffee and covering their canvases with beautiful masterpieces. Coffee painting is a beautiful art form that utilizes a common household item – coffee. It is not a new art form by any means, but recently, it has been sweeping the globe and has become increasingly popular. Coffee paintings smell great, are aesthetically pleasing to look at, and it is a great medium for any artist who is looking to try new things.
If you are intrigued by this branch of coffee culture and want to give it a try, it is simple and easy to do at home – even beginners can do it! Coffee paint is simply created by adding coffee (usually instant) to water and varying the strength to get different colors and tones. Some people even boil the coffee to get the darkest colors possible. From that point on, all you need is a bit of talent and some watercolor paper to create your own coffee-based works of art.
New to the world of coffee painting? Here are some tips and guidelines for beginners.
Here are the basic materials you need for a coffee painting:
Once you’ve got your basic materials, you can get started. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you create your own coffee-based works of art.
Bonus Tip: Make colors in different cups. Drop a small amount of instant coffee powder into different cups. You can use instant coffee to create different colors and tones – simply add more or less water until you reach the optimum medium.
Bonus Tip: Think about what you want to paint. It’s very useful to lightly sketch your design onto the surface that you are going to paint on.
Bonus Tip: Add paint when the first layer is completely dry. If you start to paint on top of a wet layer, the colors will mix and swirl in a way that’s very hard to control. If your colors do start to bleed, stop painting immediately and let them dry. Then, paint over the blended area with your desired color.
Bonus Tip: Add details using a small brush. Note that water easily dilutes the coffee paint which leaves it lighter wherever applied. So, lighten some small areas. After adding details to your design, go back and refine your piece. Correct any mistakes and add any finishing touches.
Bonus Tip: To preserve your coffee painting effectively, make sure that your painting has a considerable distance from the glass. You can do this by adding some matting around your painting before framing it. There are frame shops that can customize the frame and matting for you.
