The art of drawing boiled coffee is not new - there are thousands and thousands of people around the world who want to master and repeat the intricate patterns left by the hand of the artist with the help of coffee residues. As an easel, not only habitual paper is suitable, but even leaves torn from trees. This is how the Indonesian artist Ghidaq al-Nizar paints his masterpieces today. He leaves pictures on coffee crema, plates, leaves. Everything is used - from the coffee grounds, which serves as the ground and bark of the trees, to, in fact, the coffee itself, with the help of which the drawings are created. Let's try to repeat these wonderful works, or at least a little closer to them.

For work you will need to take the following materials:

  • coffee (suitable and boiled and instant);
  • brush;
  • watercolor paper or leaves;
  • water;
  • paper tape;
  • palette for mixing shades of coffee.

On watercolor paper, drawing coffee is easiest - it is perfect for this. This and the best "paint" is obtained thanks to inexpensive granulated (soluble) coffee, although boiled in a Turk will also do.

1. Brew coffee to a thickness of sour cream. This is a basic framework that will allow you to further experiment with color.

2. Using scotch tape, fasten watercolor paper on the work surface, take a palette, brush and start painting. Start with coloring the background.

3. When the background dries, you can start drawing. For dark objects pure coffee is used, for lighter ones coffee is diluted with water in the palette. Match shades as needed.

4. Drawing on leaves is not much different from drawing on paper, except that the dried leaf is a rather fragile material for work. Extreme care is required not to break it. But the result will be beyond praise!
