Coffee art by Mabel Bautista @mabzb
“I started painting with coffee when I saw a YouTube artist doing this type of art. It piqued my interest as I’m into unusual art mediums. I make a lot of food art, so I thought this was definitely a fun thing to do.
I use coffee like how I use watercolor to paint. I make 2 coffee solutions – a light shade (1 part coffee to 2 parts water) and a dark shade (2 parts coffee to 1 part water). I first pencil sketch the subject on paper. Then, start to paint with light shade solution. After letting it dry, I apply the dark shade solution for highlighting the details.”
