Coffee Painting

My first coffee painting and the latest addition to my Art collection:

The Sun


Here are the materials you require for coffee painting:

  • Canvas sheet cut to the desired dimensions
  • 2B pencil
  • Sieved Coffee powder ( I used Nescafe)
  • 3D outliner
  • Flat brushes (I have used size 10 for varnishing, 8 – for the base, 3 and 1 for painting the darker shades)
  • Camlin’s Fabric glue and gloss
  • Camlin’s Paint Varnish


In order to set the base of the canvas sheet to a light beige, I mixed a pinch of coffee powder to 2 teaspoons of water and added 2 drop of glue and painted the base of the canvas. Let it dry for about 2 hours.

Sketch a design on the canvas and retrace the outlines with a gold colored 3D outliner. Let it dry for about 2 hours.

Now depending on the shade of brown you prefer, keep adding coffee powder to the water + coffee + glue mixture already prepared and paint the areas.

Once done with the entire painting, let the canvas dry for about 4 hours and then apply a generous coat of varnish to protect your painting from dust.

Hope you find this useful.. happy painting!
