Follow these amazing tips below to make sure you got everything you needed!
Prepare Your Tools
Obviously, we start with ensuring that everything we need is in one place and accessible for you. And make sure you have your coffee grounds too, best to get instant coffee ones since they work likely best as a medium for this painting.
Have a Goal in Mind
Before even starting, make sure that you have already internalized what kind of painting project you will be making. Best to create ones that work best with coffee colour or hues. Probably anything that resembles any brown colours with it.
You can do portraits, illustrations or anything that you might think of
Use Treated Paper
Treated paper such as waxed paper will alter the behaviour of the coffee mixture and offer a new set of textures and possibilities at a slower drying pace.
