Here are some guides to making your own
coffee painting from start to finish:
1. Prepare Your Materials
All you need are watercolor paper, paintbrush, coffee, and water. Choose a watercolor paper which is 300-400 gsm. I’ve worked with an 200 gsm Canson watercolor paper. As for paintbrushes, it’s best to work with a point brush for details and round-tip brush, I prefer Mont Marte acrylic brushes. Use 100% pure black instant coffee. I regularly use Maxims Coffee in most of my paintings.
2. Prepare a Light Coffee Solution and a Dark Coffee Solution
3. Sketch On Paper
4. Paint With a Light Shade First
5. Then Paint Using a Dark Shade
6. Let Your Painting Dry for at least 24 Hours Before Framing
Smell the coffee from your painting and let it dry for at least a day before securing it with a glass frame. Make sure that the painting has a considerable distance from the glass to preserve it effectively. You can do this by adding some matting around your painting before framing.
