Paint with Coffee or Tea Challenge

For this challenge, you are going to create a painting using coffee or tea. I only have herbal tea at my house, so my “paint” turned out a little pink/purple colored. Use whatever you have! You’ll have to think creatively about what you’re going to paint, because you only have one color. Painting with tea and coffee is quite a lot like painting with watercolor, so think about layering it and letting it dry between layers to get cool effects.

Here’s what you’ll need.

1/2 cup of leftover coffee **or**
2 tea bags (I used Tazo, passion flavor) steeped in 1/2 cup hot water
Thick paper
Paint brush or qtips

Have fun!
