Painting with Coffee by Gold-Seven Painting with Coffee by Gold-Seven
So here, as promised, is my coffee painting tutorial! I actually haven't found any on the web that went much further than "Make coffee. Paint." And there's so much interesting stuff going on with the medium, it's well worth investigating further! So, have fun!

Note #1: Yes, it smells nice, but the smell soon evaporates. ;)

Note#2: Oh my God. Front page, and so many comments. :wow: Please forgive me if I don't manage to reply too soon! For questions regarding subject matter, printers and such, could I be so bold as to direct you to my FAQ on my blog? Thank you!

Note #3 Now a DD? You. Guys. Are. Bonkers. Thank you so much: ~Silenceheard and ^Elandria!

This is going to help so much! I want to do a coffee painting, but didn't know if there was specific ways of doing it. This tutorial is definitely the best help I have ever found on the subject. As well as the only one mentioning how the brushes don't stay nice, which makes perfect sense when thought about.

I was wondering do you use hot water or cold water to dissolve the coffee? (for painting that is not drinking)

hot water is never good for brushes...

You can use cold, but you have to stir very fast in that case!

It's lovely, but I must wonder what the long term affect is... After a few years how the image would look...

It looks just fine. Unless you keep it in the basement during a flood. :(
