INK & COFFEE
Using coffee with inks is a fun way to build strong contrast in your artwork. You can stain your entire paper to make it look old or only stain a section to add detail. Layering inks on top of these stains can create a beautiful brown to black contrast. Even adding some colors can really make a piece pop when combined with this staining process.
Breaking away from your traditional methods of painting can really open the doors to many creative and thought provoking pieces of art. This month, we provide you with all the tools necessary to spark that creative out of the box thinking!
