1. Introduction To This Class: Hi there. My name is Marina, and I am an artist like me. You may enjoy drinking coffee a lot, but I'm sure there something that you don't know about coffee yet. I am going to tell you a secret right now, but actually, it's a top secret. I'm not going to tell you. I'm just going to show you. So what exactly is coffee painting pending with coffee? It's basically like watercolor painting with the difference that it's a monochromatic at form, which means that only one callus involved. Nevertheless, the almost ended arrangement of warm brown and CPS tones that he can create from coffee will give you unlimited options for creating impressive artworks. You will love the unique, almost antique looks at a painting with coffee create. It's one off the biggest advantages of coffee painting. It's It's easy accessibility. All you need is instant coffee, some water. What kind of paper from paintbrushes, Pence, um, and pay. But how was so basically most off the things you already have at home anyway, so there's nothing that could stop you from getting started right now. So now you may wonder, what am I going to learn in the flat following the motto, Learning by doing, We're going to cover step by step all the basics of coffee painting with easy to understand and follow instructions aligned with all my personal tips and tricks. That's why this course is off a few notable for you. If you are totally painting you be, let's have a look at the course outline now. And as there is a lot to learn about coffee painting, I decided to split of class into two different parts. In this first part of the class. I'll basically supply you with all the bioethics on how to get started with coffee painting . We're going to talk about the material said You needed more details, my self appointed going rules of coffee painting as well as common beginner mistakes and how to avoid, um, but then going to finish this part with first simple painting exercises that are designed to make you feel familiar with you? Think Coffee have pained aligning and Grady in practice, as well as an introduction to basic and creative painting techniques. In the second part. We're then going to apply our new knowledge and skills and totally focused on painting, sharing a probe worth and your results off these painting assignments. It's also going to be your class project. During the course, our painting exercises were gradually increasing complexity, and we're going to finish off the class with the creation of our first really cool coffee paintings. Why? Practicing different techniques and strategies, we're going to create a variety of totally different subjects to make a long story short. If you are curious and creative, mind with or without Priore painting experience this class for you. Let's live together the mystery off the unconventional but truly amazing art of coffee paintings. But beware painting with coffee, maybe s addictive as drinking coffee to you and my class by 2. Materials (Essentials, Recommendations And More): Hello, my friends. And welcome to the very first lesson and our coffee painting class. We're going to talk about all the material that you need to get started with coffee painting, birth of all. I'm going to talk to you about the essentials, though things that he really, really, really need to get started. Then I'm going to give you some recommendations on things, but I'm not totally essential, but they're gonna make your life at the coffee painter much easier and left. But not least, I'm gonna mention some totally optional things that you won't really need that in case you're going to get more theory is about coffee painting. They will be very youthful. Okay. Oh, let's get started. So let's talk about the things that you will need for this class. First number one is coffee. The price surprise. So you can use either instant coffee mixed with water or brewed coffee. I personally always use instant coffee toe. I suggest you to do the same during the clad, as it will be easier to follow my instructions. You will also need water. You'll need water firstly to mix it with your coffee off course to create the coffee pain and also pure water to wash out. A brash is. Therefore, when painting always have at least two water glasses next to you, one for each purpose. If you are an artist, you may have a pellet at home toe. Makes your coffee pain. If not, don't worry. You can use blesses blades or let's so makes your coffee. I personally useful. It's off our borders are water containers to mix my coffee paint if I think they have the perfect size. When I'm done with painting, I can just let my remaining unused coffee pain sit in them and create a reusable coffee paved. I'll show you later in the class. How to make this next thing that they're gonna need for this course is what I call a paper . So if you can see what a color paper comes in all different kinds off site third with different weights and different text. Shin's which weight? Hmm, honestly, every water kind of artist will give you a different advice on the paper. What you should use If you have a non supply around, I'd say go for it least 180 grams per square meter, I'm working with said, and I find it totally fine. I just recently got 220 grams per square meter paper, but honestly, I get better resides on my 180 grams paper. However, generally you can say the thick of a paper, the better. If you see 300 grams per square meter paper in your store, go for it. Take paper will be in particular beneficial if you're planning on creating paintings with lots off Doug every and Bora completely dark background as it were. Jeff Fact up the water much better in terms of texture. Watercolor paper comes in different texture if, like natural grain, mechanical grain off move. Yeah, you can see the different Take stuff off my watercolor paper. What kind of texture is best for you? It's hard to say totally depends on what you want to do and what you prefer. That's why I encourage you to maybe get two differently textured watercolor sketch books and just try what kind of texture you like. That one more tip here it's very handy to get such a sketchbook with a spiral binding. If you can just flip the pages and this way you are able to work on different paintings at the same time and something else that it definitely gonna need our paintbrushes. And you can see I have a big variety of thumb here. Of course, if all different kinds off paintbrush of ledge around, pointed can shape and so on, if you're interested in doing arty stuff, you might already have paintbrushes at home. If not, it shouldn't be too hard for you to find some, though. And of course, they come in different sizes as well. So if you want to take part in painting practices off this club, you should have at least some final pointed paintbrushes, and some fled paintbrushes in different sizes. Next thing you may want to youth is a pennsy and wide rubber or raising in particular as a total beginner. You may want to pre sketch certain objects or landscapes before you start painting them. I'm not a total beginner anymore, and estate do this if it helps me to get a clearer vision off the final painting. And while I'm painting, it works as a little guideline for me, and you can do coffee painting without paper towers. Peixoto is our youth work for cleaning out your brushes. Why you are painting, for example, when you want to switch to a different shade, in particular a lighter one, but also after you're done with painting leading the paintbrushes after every youth is essential. Coffee can get very sticky. Paper towels can also be used to wipe off excess water off your paint branch or to take off water wet paint off your painting. We learn more about that later on during this course. Okay, so let's talk now about the things that are not essential about definitely recommended, as they are going to make your life a coffee painter. Much Ilia and some off the materials can also be used to create special effects. Okay, something very youthful is a little sheet off paper that you have next to you while you are painting. I always have a little sheet of watercolor paper, usually the same kind of paper that in painting on next to me while I'm painting to try our change that I just makes and to see how they will look on the paper and sometimes wipe off too much water. Attorney stiffly your paper towel. We will do what you can. Also uses masking tape. If you have been watercolor painting before a state do, you may already have masking tape at home. You don't really need it when painting isolated objects. But if you're going to create more complex paintings with the background wash, you may want to use it to avoid blurry edges on your painting again. This is not essential. Some people prefer organic looking edges for the straight lines anyway. Okay, so I would tell you this later on again, but I already want to mention it here. If you decide to use masking tape, stick it on your clothes, for example, pans or sleeves and pull it off one such wise before you apply it to the paper. This way, the tape won't stick to a too much, and it would be easier to remove it later on again. Another thing that is optional but very youthful is a little water spray bowler. Although a spray bottle is totally not affection, it can be handing too wet areas on the paper or to re moisturize your coffee paint. We won't use it during the caso another anything, uh, like ink pans or Carlo for gel pens. Once we're done with your paintings, you can give them a personal note or some comic or illustration kind of look by adding outlines, for example, with a black ink pen or with color for Jenna pens. I have also started to throw in my paintings with a cinema Jenna Pin if I find very elegant . But if you want to, youth east or not is totally up to you. There will be a few exercises during this class where you can and one of thumb about the floor be optional. Additionally, there is a whole bunch off tours or materials that you can use to create special effects on your coffee paintings. For example, if a tell us again straws, two pigs or, alternatively, I need love toothbrush and offer everything that you can to stem with. Yet, for example, Bungie surfaces or these things We were used some of these utensils, roads class, and I'm sure that most of the things you will have at home already anyway, at least if you improvise a little, I'll tell you more about it when the time has come, okay, and besides, all of these two is that you can use to create special effects. There are also some materials that you can use, for example, right rubbing alcohol and thought we're awful going to youth these materials during the class to see what kinds of effects we can create with them. This is optional, though, so if you have any of these items missing, you can just watch me applying them in the according lesson. But somehow I have a feeling you have at least thought and rife at home. Another thing that I highly recommend, but that I don't have at home, though, if Roberts amend Robert Zimmerman is used by many watercolor attitudes to make sure certain areas remain white during the painting process, it kind of masks your paper and creates like a protective shield from the coffee pain or water color paint. Of course, that can be in particular youthful. If you're working with watering Washington, things like that. I have tried everything to find robots Amanti on the canneries where I'm living, but I was not successful. Therefore, I won't be able to show you how it works in this class, and we're gonna have a similar a little experiment with glue instead. However, if you get the chance to buy it, go for it. It's so youthful. One more thing that I wanted to mention here, after you're completely done with your coffee paintings, you want to make sure that they're in a safe location, though you could either put them into a picture frame. Or you could actually start a little art portfolio book just as I did here. And as you can see, I can put in all my paintings in here ends this way. They protected, and I can even take them with me if I want to show that my friends and last but not least, some totally option of things that are not gonna be used during this class. But I want to mention them here for completeness. Number one can just if with watercolor. If I know of coffee artists and paint with coffee on can with as this is a total beginners class, we wound you that here, though, this is something that you can consider if you get more serious about coffee painting efforts, of course, way more costly than water kind of payback. And the other thing is varnish. I person that you don't have it at home. But I have heard that it is used by coffee are to cover up their final coffee paintings to make them longer lasting and give them a glossy look. And one last thing is glue. Yeah, so you can actually make so into your coffee pain to give it a more glossy look and also give it longer lasting properties on the paper. However, I haven't tried that yet. I just wanted to let you know about it. Okay, my friends, we are done with the material. Thanks for watching this lesson. Let me know in the comment section, if you have any questions and I'm happy to have you and I would say Let's now continue with the next lesson. And just to let you know, I will upload a pdf fire with all the materials that you need to get started with coffee painting so you can print it out and take it with you when you're going shopping 3. Golden Rules And Common Beginner Mistakes: Hello and welcome back, my friends. Let's talk in this lesson about the seven golden wolf off coffee painting, coffee painting, if another fund and definitely Futebol for beginners. But it can also be challenging for a bunch of different reasons. That's why we want to talk about the golden roof of coffee painting in this lesson, and how to avoid common beginner mistakes to make sure you're gonna have a fun and if, except for first experience, painting with coffee during this class. So let's talk about the challenges of coffee painting where quick, First of all the texture, coffee has more elastic properties, the normal paint, and it can get sticky on the paintbrush. It's basically harder to control the lines, kala tones and the flow off liquid on the paper. Also, it can be hard to figure out the right amount of water and coffee to get exactly the brown tone that you want. And the worst of all, there's no white with which you could cover up your brown tones. You have to know where your highlights from the beginning on, and it also limits you in the ability to correct mistakes. Sounds intimidating. No worries If you follow the seven golden rules of coffee painting that I came up with, you'll have everything under control. So let's get started. Rule number one half the right mindset. Learning a new skill can be intimidating, but don't be scared. Try to have the red expectations about coffee painting. What's your motivation? What's your artistic goals? What kind of stuff would you like to paint When you start painting? Allow your creativity to flourish. Don't be too perfectionist. Don't be too critical with yourself. Allow and forgive yourself Mistakes don't give up too soon. Be rather flexible with the outcome. Just go with the flow and adjuster. Ideas and strategies during the pro thief of painting Don't put itself under pressure. You don't have anything to prove to anyone. Art is supposed to be fun and a way to express yourself. Enjoy the paralysis. The worst beginner mistake I can think of in this context. ISS. You're not even trying it. But let me guess tomorrow, right? Stop procrastinating and just give it a try. It takes time to learn a new skill. The main thing is to get started, but that's why you are here, right? Good so the problem's already thought. If then Rule number two, be prepared and all set up. No. What you want to paint. If you don't have anything on your mind yet, look for idea. Browse the Internet or your own photos and find your safe inspirations and referring Visualize your painting in your mind's eye and come up with a logical sequence of steps based on what's easiest for you. If you cannot see it clearly in your mind, make a list. Also make a sketch of necessary that can be very head for before you start painting, said Appiah. Spot. With all the equipment you're going to need, make sure you have everything next to you and during the process. Avoid distractions and focus on your hard work a common beginner mistake that I can see not only for coffee painting, but in general. It's when people are trying to pain Realistic without a reference. Why make it hard of unnecessary? Find yourself a reference on instagram or you with your own photographs or even real objects are models. It's so much easier to paint realistic when you have something to look at and compare. And three you have the right materials and equipment. We've already talked about all the materials you need in the previous lesson, but just one more reminder here that it's really important to work with decent equipment and materials. I'm talking here in particular, about the paintbrush. If and paid at best, you will also have, though things that hand that make your life at the coffee paint on much easier, such as masking tape. Rob us amend and so on. In this picture, I want to show you the difference between using thin, normal paper and watercolor paper. One common begin a mistake that I made. It's where, when I started with coffee painting is not using appropriate paper, normal paper content of the amount of water you will apply when painting with coffee. You can see how the paper off my first painting at all, uneven and curled up, while the watercolor paper did not show any change. Therefore, go for watercolor paper off at least 180 grams birth square meter. That is my personal recommendation. Other beginner mistakes in love, the pain Bratcher, I am not saying spent a whole bunch of money for them in particular. Not if you're just starting to paint, but make sure they are off a decent material clean without remnants from previous painting sessions and no torch release. Crafty Order Shepherd. Also, make sure you're using the red brush size, depending on what you're painting. Big flat brushes are good for background washes, but for smaller details and fine lines, you wonder you final paintbrushes makes sense, right? And number four youth the right amount off water Finding their ID radio of coffee and water cannot only be tricky when you're trying to brew the perfect coffee for you to drink, but also when you're trying to create a 13 brown tone for your painting As a general rule, you can say more water and coffee makes a lighter tone and left water and coffee makes the more saturated brown tone quite logical, isn't it? Many beginners make the mistake to use too much water and then with control off the pain, there's different ways of overworking your paper. For example, if you apply too much water before or while you're working on a background wash, or if you add and lift off what pain too often In those cases, the paper contender or suck up all the water and may start to curl up or deserve at the surface. But what were paper can also leave water stains, and it would be much harder to create sharp lines and edges on it. And that can even happen. Toe Watercolor paper if you overdo it, so keep your water usage under control. Ever start with less water? You can always add more. Rule number five. Work from light to dark when painting with coffee, you don't have different colors that you can overlay each other with. That's it. It's a monochromatic add form, which means you only have one. Kara Brown. You can only go from night to dark. That means with each object or area within your painting, you have to start with the lightest area and then gradually go darker by implying more paint. Yes, no way you can do it. Rebirth and painting with coffee. You cannot make DACA areas white again. Maybe because he didn't plan it out thoroughly or because he didn't pay attention and had an accident. It can happen to all of us. We accidentally painted over an area that we wanted to remain highlighted or white you can see in this painting off mine. I also ended up with an area that should have stayed much light of and it ended up, and it's honestly, not much you can do about it. Can try to take off some coffee painter thing, water and a brash Okay, bartella, but you won't get the paper totally white again. That's why it's attention to be completely aware of which areas have to remain white and leave them untouched from the beginning on. If you have it available, you can. For example, you throw about some men to protect the highlighted areas up front. Or you can go over little mistakes with a wide ink pen. Last but not least, did you to editing after you're done, if another possibility and number six coffee painting is all about layering. If I Jeff mentioned when you paint with coffee, you have only one Khanna brown, and it's different shades. Surely you can mix different brown tones by different water coffee ratios, but you create contrast and vibrancy in your painting. You have to work in Laos, layering of so to say, the basic principle of coffee painting and of course, we can say you're it's a general rule, more layoff. We apply the dark of the respective area or line gets to a certain extent. As a beginner, you may not have the confidence and patients to experiment around and apply a lot of layers , which may reside in your paintings. Having little contrast and rich now and therefore looking pair or washed out to create more realistic paintings with bigger contrasts, you have to take some time and at lots of different layers, more layoff mean Richard Brown tones and even dimensionality. And the last rule number seven Be patient, slow and steady wins the race. This last rule comes and Derek Correlation to the previous rule in particular, If you're creating darker and more complex coffee paintings, you'll need to do this many by creating layer after layer. And it's very important to lead wet areas dry completely before applying the next layer. That means the most time you'll have to plan, and it's not for the protest off painting itself, but for letting each layer dry before you can continue, and the more water your paint longer. It will need to dry off course. Keep that in mind one off the most common beginner mistakes, I bet so, is to continue painting two through one. I've done this quite often myself. If certain areas haven't dried completely yet and to pay by still, damn, it may cause your Web copy pain to believe into its surroundings, which were caused blurry edges and UMA and having paint in areas where you didn't want it. This is what happened to me once when I couldn't wait and paint a too fast on a wet area, and you can see how the water spread uncontrollably and the alien ended up looking completely different to what I wanted them to look like. Well, so have a guess. What's a solution for this problem If I mentioned it already, be patient. Always give your painting enough time to dry before you continue or before you move it around. The best location for your painting to dry as a sunny, dry spot where it's protected from any danger such a rain or storm or any other water influences. If you don't have sunshine, you can also blow a drive faster with a hair dryer. And while you're waiting for an area to dry, you can either move onto another area and pains if one, but it shouldn't be bordering your wit area. I have something else to do by the fired like cooking dinner. Are reading a good book for the periods that you have to wage? Okay, my friends, we are done with a lesson. I know it was a lot of information, but by talking about my safe created seven golden rules off coffee painting. I wanted to give you a better idea off what coffee painting is all about and in particular , how you can avoid common beginner mistakes. I would also upload a pdf for you guys so you can always check out the rules again and don't need to watch the whole video again for it already. I think now you're ready for the next step in the following lesson. We're going to start painting with coffee. Yea, see you soon 4. Lining And Gradient Practice 1 (Assignment 1): Yea After we learned a lot of coffee painting background knowledge so far, we're now going to grab our paintbrushes and start to experience painting with coffee. This lesson is designed for students who have no experience with painting whatsoever. We are going to try out how we can handle a different brushes on the paper, and we will create Grady INS by layering and by mixing different brown shades from coffee attacking actively. Part in this lesson is also considered as part of the class project. Therefore, several assignments would need to be done and the best besides corrective. We will be able to use the sheet that we're creating that the brown shade refer inflow of future coffee paintings. These exercises are designed to give you a feeling for coffee as painting mediums alongside applying basic painting techniques. For this lesson, you'll need all the basics and nothing more. Instant coffee water the fuel, it's or small boils or glasses. The pencil and a pen. Paintbrushes of different sizes and shapes, one sheet of water, kind of paper, a paper towel will and a little sheet of paper. Okay, so let's get started right away with the lining practice, which is dedicated to getting to know our paintbrushes and how to handle them on our paper . Plus, we're going to practice painting basic shapes and precision. Okay, So before we can get started, we need to mix our coffee pain, grab a little bowler glass or lit. And I'd say we're gonna start with the ratio Oneto one a Westerner coffee mix. In other words, which ever unit off measurement truth could be a little spoornet I'm using. You have to make the same amount of coffee with water. Thank your time there slowly to avoid phone. Once you're done, we can continue. I hope you were able to find some paintbrushes in different sizes and shapes. If so, we want to start with the smallest one that you have. You can see I have a very tiny and pointing one. Here. You take whatever your smallness paintbrushes. So did your paintbrush into the coffee, pained and always tried out on your little sheet of paper first to avoid bed surprises. It helps you, for example, to check the exact color off your mixture, which is not so important here. But it can be off course and to get rid off excess paint or water to get a feeling for the brush. We want to practice painting different shapes now. Faith. What if you could, Maybe you. It's the 1st 3rd off your paper sheet. Then we can compare three different brush sizes next to each other. We're going to start with agenda Line, followed by a line with more pressure. You may notice how a change in the pressure has an effect on the look off the line so we can logically conclude behind lines with little pressure for stronger lines, with more pressure to 1/3 and extent only, Of course, after the simple lines, let's do some basic to your metric and shapes now started with a square that at a circle. And then I decided for a filled shapes such a heart. But you can pick whatever you want. Don't worry if your shapes do not look super amazing at the first time. These exercises are no beauty contest or any kind of competition, but rather designed to inspire you and encourage you to explore the world of coffee painting and just to try out and have fun. Okay, so let's finish this part with writing a word. I'd like you to pick a word that comes to your mind spontaneously. Maybe one that report them como today and why you are painting. Try toe, reflect for yourself. What the characteristics off your pain branch. How much pain death it of Thorpe. How does it spreads the paint on the paper? And so, once you're done with the first part of his ex, if I forget to wash out a brush, Buffy can get sticky. Goody. Now it's time to pick another pain branch, which, if a little bit bigger on the scale you can see I'm still using one off the final pointy ones. But you could also go for a flat, brash or a fan shaped brush. Jeff. Not too big yet, and again we go into paint the same shapes like before in the same order. This way, we can not only get familiar with our paintbrushes, but also directly visually compare how they can handle our coffee. Pained at the same time, we can correct us our painting skills a little. For some people, it may be harder to draw straight lines. For other, it may be round shape for others again. It may be writing with coffee paint, but this corrective you can figure out what's easy for you and what used to may have to work on. And once you're done, don't forget to wash out our paint brush again. And for the next part, I'm going to truth a flag paintbrush. Now, if you haven't done that yet, you can do thought you or generally just go for a bigger, different looking one. Of course, we're going to repeat the whole procedure again. I'm going to speed abscess that you're a little bit, but you take your time. And I'm sure every time you're using a new paintbrush in a different shape and size, if you want to notice how things changed and of course, the bigger your paintbrush, Shahada, it may be for you to draw these little shapes or to write a just hang in and give it a try . Okay, for last but not least, let's take our very biggest paintbrush that we have. Maybe not one that you would. You have to pay the war with that. You know what I mean? You can see I picked a big flat one year, which is usually grateful background washer something. We're gonna burn someone in the according lesson, but for now, we're going to repeat the whole task one last time. And as this brush is so big, we're gonna use the whole width off the paper. Let's find out how we contended such a big, brash, competitive mono once before, if you know exactly what to do, I'm going to speed at my video here a little bit again. But it's always you can take your time once we're done with it. We're done with our Firth Feinman, and you will be familiar with the paintbrushes you're going to use during the scores. You get a first feeling for how cover works of painting medium, and you have practiced relief, the pain brush to create basic forms and shapes. Great. And I'm sure you all did very well. I can way to see it in the project section and one last tip here. It may be useful for you to write down the size of and the names of different brands, the pain brash if you use next to the respective area so that you can always come back and have a look at which ones you selected que. And now we're done with the first part of this lesson. Very well done. I hope you had some sun exploring your different paintbrushes. And I'm going to split the video here so you can take your well deserved coffee break if you want to see you later for the second part where we're going to experiment with different coffee, water pollutions and layering to create a variety of brown tones by phone. Oh! 5. Lining And Gradient Practice 2 (Assignment 2-1): okay, My friends will come back to the second part of the left in after our lining corrector, which was dedicated to becoming familiar with our paintbrushes and with stroking, we're now going to focus more on the coffee paint and the different brown and CBS shades that we can create from it. For this, we're going to create Grady INS, and we will do throw both by changing the ratio of coffee and water and our pain and by layering, which is, as you already know, one off the basic principles of coffee paintings at F. I mentioned before our Grady in practice that also involved the assignment number 21 into two. So I highly recommend you to paint along with me in particular as we're going to create a very youthful Brown said, referring that will be able to you with when we're painting in the future. But enough off the preface is, I know you can't wait to get started, so let's have a closer look at the coffee water ratio and how it affects the kind of that we create in our paper. Starting the Exit five. We want to draw jewel flowers with something around eight PETA with each. I mean seven Kenny nine next reach ever on our sheet of paper. If that's the bay, if you can draw them right underneath the first part of the exit five. Just if I'm doing. If you're not good at drawing Flower, you're more than welcome to activate your creativity and draw something else easier would, for example, be just a long rectangle separated into approximately eight squares or whatever comes to your mind. I go with the flowers as I think they will be beautiful, Grady INTs. Anyway, I'm gonna speed this up here a little bit. You take your time drawing these to flow off, and we're gonna meet again once you alrighty to get started. We want to mix our coffee pain together again. For generally, we want to consider the ratio coffee toe water 1 to 1 as our standard ground tone. And in this exercise, we're going to see how we can change the specific brown tone by adding more water or more coffee. That's why we want to start with a mix of one unit want, um, and one unit coffee dressed up in the exit face before in the first floor. Now we want to add more and more water to our coffee pain so that each pedal becomes gradually lighter and lighter in color. Once we're done mixing, we want to paint the eye off our flower with the 1 to 1 makes to represent our basic coffee tone in terms off the pain brunch, I'd say Go for which ever shape inside you feel like it's best here. But if you have pet of shape just of mine, I think smaller, pointy brush it's best here. So now before we start painting our first Pedder or whatever your first subdivision looks like, we want to add some water to our pollution. For my first petal, I'm adding another half spoon off water to create the makes 1 to 1.5, however, as I will not be much of a color difference. But when the 1 to 1.5 and the 1 to 2 makes which I'm going to use for my second pet, huh? I actually recommend you to keep my first step, therefore, and go straight for the 1 to 2 makes. If you do so, you will have to have a whole unit off. What off course? If you would rather for low me alone and do exactly what I'm doing, your more than where come to. Of course, either way, I've beat it up now and make you after you're done with your 1 to 2 minutes. Very important is to write down the ratio next to your pedal so you won't get confused during sex outside. And by writing down the ratio, you'll also be able to youth ingredients later on. F referring goody. So now you have either one or two parents done Either way. Let's now continue by adding one more unit off water to create a race. You off 123 I'm actually using a solution off 1 to 2.5 here for my third pillar and then 123 just for my 4th 1 But I encouraged you again to skip this uneven ratio, and to go straight to 123 at the brown shades won't be that much of a different this way. You'll have some pedals left in the end for maybe more watery solutions and can extend your Grady and even more than I did so by now, I have four petals left. You may have a few more for the remaining pad of I'm going to you. The solutions 1 to 41 to 5128 and 1 to 10. You can pick similar ratio thing at the according amount of water and once more, keep track of how much water you edit by writing it down next to the pattern. If you have more patterns left than me, you could even extend the Grady end and maybe at more watery ratio, such as 1 to 12 12 15 or even 1 to 20. By creating this Grady in with a large variety of light brown tones, I want to show you how much you can vary the standard coffee shade, Jeff, by any mortar. And if you may have noticed again showing you a speeded up version here off my progress as I don't want the video to get too long. But you can take your time to finish and I'll meet you for the second flower. Okay, so we'll come back to our second grade Ian in our first flower. We've gradually added water to our standard coffee mix. Now We're going to add more and more coffee to see which dark cover on shades we can create by changing the ratio. So basically, this part of the exercise is based on the same idea. At the last part. We're just working into the upper the direction. Thought you thing for our coffee makes. We want to start with a standard 1 to 1 ratio again, however, as we want to work in steps off half a units this time, we should make to sports off coffee with two spoons of water. Otherwise, overmix will become choosing and sticky too soon. Trust me, even if we're working in, only 0.5 are steps you works there, noted how the coffee pained. We get really think in the end and so that you're not going to waste a lot of precious instant coffee during this practice. I will tell you after we're done with our second Grady and how you can actually preserve your remaining coffee pain for later usage. Throats of class. Also, to keep your instant coffee consumption down, use a small unit off measurement. You can see I always use a tiny little spoon. Once we're going to paint bigger plantings. It may be useful to makes bigger amounts of coffee paint, of course, but not for this practice. Thus, if we did before, we want to start with painting the center off our flower with our 1 to 1 basic coffee mix. Next, we're going to add one unit of coffee to our solution to create a ratio one and toe have toe one, which is equivalent to three units of coffee dissolved in two units of water. Right. Okay, so paint your first catch it all subdivision off whatever your shape is with your coffee makes. And don't forget to write down the ratio next to the pedal. Once you're done for our second pattern, Where again? Going to add one more unit of coffee to create the race. You 2 to 1. Or, in other words, four spoons off coffee to swift and two spoons of water in the coffee. Pained we're using for this Grady in now that's left water than coffee. Therefore, the mixed we get thicker phone and the brown shades. We look stronger and darker on the paper. Every time we had more coffee, and then for each of the remaining petals. We're going to add one more spoon of coffee to our makes, and by this were change the ratio and steps off half a unit. Here, you can see an overview. Now, what you got to do with the remaining patterns? Basically, you just have to add one unit of coffee each time. I'm pretty sure you know, know what to do. So I'm going to let you do this and we'll meet you a little more towards the end again. Have fun. And don't forget your captain towards the end. And maybe depending on your type of instant coffee, you may find that your coffee paint is getting to think and maybe even a bit flying me. And it's actually not even that easy to paint with it anymore. Long wises. Increasing Sickness You will also notice that the pain won't look much darker anymore. At one point, that means there is, so to say, limit ADAC of brown shade that you can create just by changing the radio. And when you've got your race, you up to 5 to 1, you will have more or less reached the maximum brown tone. Take your time to finish and then I see you again. You can now finish this X effects by writing down all the ratio is next to the Pettus. If you haven't done the fan and maybe also at the standard rate you want toe one into the center off your flowers to complete your captions. Unregulated in guys in this bricked. If we have explored different brown and CBS shades that can create from coffee and captured them together with a respective ratios in our to radiant flowers. By doing so, you will only become much more off a coffee painting pro. You have also finished your Feinman number 21 Yea, and the best of all, you have created a very youth for brown shade, referring that you can use from now on when you're painting with coffee. If you're going to create a painting, you can use it to check which brown tones you want to youth and combine with each other and which raise issues you need to create them. Good job. And if I told you before, the sick off, the pain that you've left over now does not have to be wasted, actually, just let it sit by itself and the remaining water will eventually evaporate. Given a day, maybe depending on how much water you have left and on your current temperatures, you're on Gran Canaria. My water evaporates pretty fast. If you want to speed this process up, just let it sit in the sun. Once the water has evaporated, you will get a dark brown coffee paste that looks almost like a sugar glaze with a shiny surface. If you store this coffee paste in it in a plastic container or something, it will be reusable for quite a while. Maybe not for years, but definitely for weeks. When you want to use it for painting again, you just get it at some water to it with a spoon, a water spray border or directly with your paintbrush and mix it. The coffee will only decide if on the 3rd 5th if you don't add too much water this way, you can create very dark and strong brown tones. Oh, okay, my friends, I hope you've had some fun creating our radiance, and I'm sure you've learned a lot in this practice. So in my opinion, you deserve a little break. Now, if you feel like it and I see you for the next practice, whenever you're ready 6. Lining And Gradient Practice 3 (Assignment 2-2): Hello, my friends, and we're come back to the last part off this leaven again. We want to create Grady in snow, but this time not by changing the ratio between coffee and water, but by layering. In other words, we're going to apply coffee paint and lay off to create bacca and stronger brown tones each time. The center for layering is that we let each layer dry properly before we go on to apply the next layer. Otherwise, the fresh, wet pain may invade zones that off their damn, and we get blurry edges. I have to admit here that I myself was a bit in the rush when I filmed this last part and didn't let it dry long enough. That's why my ashes are still very. In other words, this is not only a painting practice, but also a proactive for your patients, as you would have to wait several times for quite a while. This practice is best to Dubai. Decide when you have something as to do as well, for example, cooking, dinner, breeding, a bull or something like that. Okay, so first thing to do is to mix our coffee paint if you still have any left over coffee plant. You can use it, of course, and we want to pain to different Grady INTs again. So I'd ask you to go for a lighter shade and a darker shade. I am, for example, going to youth the ratio of 1 to 1 for the stronger brown and approximately one to age bother lighter shade, but you can use your own ratios bunter down, mixing your resolutions. We're gonna meet again. Bonds were done mixing. We can draw the shape for our radiant with a pencil on the paper. You can off course, gets a step and just paint layers on top of each other anyway. But I always think in particular as a beginner, it's much easier when you have some kind of shape. Or so just sing a guideline. We're painting any said, segmented into different subdivisions. Fine. I decided to go for a long over shape that I could fit in well on the bottom of my paper sheet for my stronger ingredient and for a little square for the light of radiant. Unfortunately, I decided to add the second grade in way later on, while I was already half done with the first radiant. That's why I'll show you my progress on this one in a separate little window up there in the right corner. Thus, if you can see it right now, now we're finally ready to pain. Let's that with our first lay on for filling in bigger area without any finer details of fled. Brash if you trouble best, depending on the shapes you have picked for your Grady, and you can decide if you want to you with a rather bigger or smaller one. And once we've selected our brush, let's get started and fit. In the grade. Ian's one was stronger brown one with the lighter brown. And as this is the very first layer, we want our whole Grady ins to be completely covered by coffee paint the way we're playing . Our coffee paint here is called wet on dry wet paint on dry paper. We're going to learn more about this in the next Levin. By the way, don't worry. If you're painted areas look of, it's tricky. That's what happens sometimes when you paint wet on dry and it's not a problem in this exercise. If we're going to paint over most off the area several times anyway. After you finished your first layer I mentioned before, very important. Give it enough time to dry before you continue painting, depending on the amount of water and your solution but paper for time off the day and whether it may take more or less time to dry. If you happen to have sunshine today, good, you're painting out in the sun, and it would dry much faster if there's nothing and you have no patience, you can also use a hair dryer to you in a little while for the next layer. I'm back again, my friends here to apply the second layer with you. This time we're going to paint the whole shape with the exception off. Once Activision, which subdivision you leave out, is again totally up to you. I decided to leave out the outer area off my open shape and the little corner off my square . Take your time finishing your second layer, and once you're done, let it sit and dry long enough before we continue together. If your coffee paint already grind, you can always you with your finger to chest, but make sure you have clean hands. Oh, let's pain lay a number three. But again, we're gonna leave out one with a division. In other words, with each lay out of the area we're going to paint is getting a little smaller and just f a little reminder. Always wash our to paint brush when you're not going to use it for a while, dear again when you're third last dry pay, My friends, we've made it to lay out for budge up so far. So now that we've already applied a few layers, we should be an urge to see how each time our brown tones look stronger and darker. If you've always waited long enough, you should have also been able to create clearer edges between the layoff. And I have, as I said in particular with my lighter Grady. And a few times I didn't wait long enough to let a dry and the watery pain spread uncontrollably, and I got very action. You'll may also experience that the water refill ocean takes more time to drive and the one with more coffee in it. Logical, right? Already you can finish painting your fourth liano and your pace, and I want to remind you here many. You can add a caption to this exercise as well on something like radiant by layering. So you'll always remember what you did here and maybe offer right down to race you with your youth for both radiance. If you haven't done this yet, well, come back to Layer five and all the remaining. I am pretty sure by now you know exactly what to do. So I let you finish this practice by yourself, depending on how Maney subdivisions who picked Priore don't still have a few layers left. So I'll summarise here for you once more What to do Each time when you paint a new layer, you're going to fill in one. Let's up division than before, because office each time the area you paint has to be smaller than the last one. You're done washed out to brush and give the paint enough time to dry, maybe in the fun, or use a handrail. And if you're wondering why you're doing this time intense exercise and what it's good for , let me explain birth of all layering. That's the basic concept of coffee painting layering we are ever to create many different brown tones on our coffee painting, and by this we cannot only generate contrast, but also three dimensionality and death. If you look at the shape that I picked, you can see how the Grady in by layoffs XY flat paintings look three dimensional. The 1st 1 almost looked like a mountain on the map, the second almost like a pyramid from a slanted angle. You see what I mean? Probably you can confirm the for your own Grady ins as well. Layering is also a practical patience, and by this exercise I wanted you to experience a time frame that may be necessary to create a coffee panting. With many Laos off course, he won't always need 789 layoffs on your painting. That totally depends on what you're painting and which approach you choose, as you can probably remember from the previous part off the 11 who can also create lighter and darker shades by changing the ratio between coffee and water, so you may not necessarily need a whole lot off, layers added. We also rarely occur, though, that you don't need to a play more than one way to make a long story short. they ask are important I finishing this last practice off the lesson. You were also done with your assignment number 22 You can also consider the outcome off this as an extension to your brown shade referendums effort will always give you an idea of how many Neha you'll need to apply to get a certain brown tone anyway. Grea job you are. I hope you've had a lot of fun in this whole lesson and, like you feel a little bit more familiar now with your equipment in particular your paintbrushes and your coffee makes as painting medium, but also with your watercolor paper and so on. I am very much looking forward to seeing some pictures and reading some of your thoughts about this proactive in the project section and, of course, feel more than welcome to get in touch. If you have any questions off, you think, do you for the next lesson where we're going to get to know all kinds of basic and creative techniques to apply our coffee pen to the paper by funnel 7. Washes And Creative Techniques 1 (Assignment 3-1): Hey, my friends were come back after we got a little bit familiar with the brushes and coffee, pained as well. F With the possibility that we have to create different brown shades, we're now going to practice different washes and creative techniques. In this lesson, I want you to see and experience what kinds off effective can create with coffee. If you are inexperienced watercolor artists, you have probably come across the one of the other technique already. But if not, no problem. Just as and the last exercise, I would explain everything step by step to you while you can see what I'm doing. So no experience if needed. But if Levin you'll need additionally to the standard equipment masking tape sold rise rubbing ICA home A to speak or needle a stroll, robot cement or, alternatively, blue something to them. For example, a cork and that Orosz punch. At least that's what I'm going to youth and a jail or in pen. In case you don't have all of the things, you can still learn something by watching me, but I'm almost sure you have most off these things at home anyway. Also, don't worry if what you created does not look exactly like what I created. This is not a beauty contest, but five experiment. And I can from a few everyone's resides are going to look completely their friend. I just want you to try out of techniques and have fun. Okay, so let's start with the basic washing techniques, which will also be the first part off a thing. Man number three. Okay, first of all, I'd like it. You create 40 million books of onion sheet of watercolor paper. They can all be off different size. You can either use masking tape as I am doing here. But if you don't have that, she could offer Just catch the boxes on your paper with a pencil. One more chip here. In case you're using masking tape, stick it to your cloth first before you apply it to the paper. This way it will be easier to lift off the sticky tape from your paper. Once you're done with the pain. By the way, I'm again using 180 grams birth Grameen, A paper for the exercise. Okay, Next thing on the list of pre mixing your coffee pained. I like you too. makes two different shades you have. The basic idea is to have a strong brown tone and a lighter one for the strong one. I'm, for example, mixing our basic mix oneto one coffee to water and for the lighter one something around 1 to 6. Coffee to water. I recommend you to create something similar. Malaba doesn't have to be the exact same ratio in terms of pain branches. I would recommend it to you with flat brushes for these exercises. If you maybe have a smaller and bigger one, that would work out perfectly fine. Okay, guys, let's start with a flat washed. Our goal here is to create one even color, with no darker or lighter areas. Red water on the paper first, don't make a to wear, though. The area should look shiny, but there shouldn't be any patterns. Next, put a lot off paint on your big flat brush off, which ever shade you prefer and then make light strokes with your brushed with breadth. The coffee paint evenly and always drove into the same direction. If you need you, you can try to even out patterns by taking off excess water, either with your brush or paper. Tell us another way to even out paddles is to lift up your paper sheet from your table and tip it, but that the pain can spread evenly and done with a flat wash. Wasn't hot guys want? So let's now do with something a bit more complicated. The Grady in wash or fate instead of one flat color. We want to reach this time that the pain fades gradually from dark to light. I picked a longer Bach fifth time, and I already applied water to adjust as we did with the flat watch. So please do that, too. Now again, put a lot of coffee paint on your flat brush to then pick the darker shade to create a grade Ian's. We're going to start by just adding one or a few strokes off coffee painters, a paper. Then we went the brush with water. Make another few strokes, add more water, and so on this way, the pain we get later and later in the end again, you can try to even out public with your brash or paper towel as I am joined here, or by lifting and slanting your paper sheet. Grady ins are really not that easy. If you did well in your first try, you can be really proud. And if not, don't very look minded and turn out that well, either. That's what we're gonna do. Another one they don't. Yea, But before we go ahead, I want to give you a list off. The most important tips all kinds off washes you with big, flat brush of the bigger the better When you apply water, make the paper shiny, wet and not cuddly wet to avoid streaks. Work first so that the pain won't dry while you're still working on your wash. Don't stroke in two different directions. To avoid unevenness, try to even out paddles by absorbing the excess water with a dry brush or paper tone, while by chipping your sheet to head the pain sprint and find the right time to stop. Sometimes, when you're trying to improve things, you're just making it words. In other words, don't mess around with you. Wash too much. The next technique we're going to try. It's called wet on wet and if used to create blurry, abstract looking effect as before, start with supplying water evenly on your selected area, then drop some coffee pain onto it. If you can see the drips were bleed and blend into each other. Even though coffee painting as monochromatic and we cannot vary the colors here very much, we can at least you with our two different shades and stay create interesting takes. Just it isn't that beautiful effect guys and totally different to what we did before. I hope you like it too. The next technique is called wet on dry, and it's probably the way most people get started with painting. I also use this technique a lot as it is just very suitable for realistic painting because you can create shop contrasts and more details. So this time you wanna have a dry background, so don't apply water. Put wet coffee paint on your brush and start painting up. I'm just accept, literally drawing some random lines here. You can see this time the color after not stronger, the lands harder and the edge of sharper Do you see what I mean? Okay, so our last technique from the first part off the exercise of called Brian Wet and it's quite rare this time we're again going to a play water evenly to our selected area. Next we put some almost right coffee pained on our paintbrush without using much water, you have to use a very thick mix of pain for this one. If you have youth yourself may dry coffee pay from the last exercise as I'm doing here. Or mix on instant coffee with very little water. Now start applying some off the dry coffee pain to your watery background. If you can see the from the coffee, pain won't bleed and blur too much into the wetness. However, the register get a slightly blue really started. The whole thing almost looks a bit like we're pretty. Do you guys agree? Okay, my friends Very well done. We are done now with the first part off this lesson. And therefore with the first part of a Simon. Yea, I hope you had some fun exploring and I'm going to split the video here so you can take your well deserved coffee break. Now. See you later for the second part where we're gonna have a look at some creative techniques 8. Washes And Creative Techniques 2 (Assignment 3-2): Hey, guys, and we'll come back to this lesson. I hope you had a nice never break. And the second part, we're now gonna have a look at some creative techniques that we can apply when painting with coffee. So let's go on another little exploration together and create something cool. And just to remind you, taking part in this practice is also the second part off assignment number three for one off the effects that I would really like to show you. We would need robot cement if you have it. Congratulations. I was not able to protect it anywhere here on the Canary Islands. That's why I'm using glue and stare to demonstrate you a similar effect. You prepare this effect, pick one off your boxes and deploy your robots. Amanda or blue. You can apply your both men with a brush, but if you use glue, rather apply it straight from the bottle. If you have neither know, very few can still learn from watching me. The way you apply the glue to your paper is totally up to you. Just be creative, by the way. I want to mention here that glue cannot be considered a really alternative to a bottom end because you cannot wrap it off the paper afterwards. Therefore, it is not suitable to create highlights in that sense, but you can still use it for interesting, abstract and even three dimensional effects. So why we let our glue over butterman dry? We can already continue with the next technique we want to see, which, if it rubbing alcohol can have on coffee pain, you can see as I'm talking here. I've already started to cava one of my areas with coffee paint. DACA shades were better, and from my experience, a pension. Be too with that's what I'm applying the pain wet on dry here. But you could also do a flood wash and then let a dry just a little bit. Once you're done with your background grippy, Iike a whole, maybe feel a little bit into a little container. First dip in your paintbrush and ripped the ankle on the wet paint. The alcohol will push away the coffee and relief little circles, but to see the final result, we gotta let it dry. No, another technique that, if used among watercolor artists, is the so called graffito. If time we're going to scratch, so you'll need a toothpick or a needle. Usually, graffito is about scratching off dry paint off the paper to make deeper layers with a bow. However, you can also scratch into your paper before you apply the paint. So pick a box off your choice now and start scratching any pattern intern that comes to your mind. And here you can see what I have scratched into my paper. Once you're done scratching, you can apply the coffee pain again. This technique works better with darker shades. You can apply, the pain went under I water. First, it's not necessary. While you're painting over the paper, you will see how the scratches become visible now as a Web pain together within them. Anything that looks great and is youth were for painting all kinds of structures and textures from for two leaf veins or watch. You guys may remember from the first part of this lesson that I told you we're going to practice some more tricky Grady in wash ones again. The time has come, the idea of actually just to create a background wash for another effect later on that this is a good possibility to correct this it once more. Even if you're Grady in. Turned out well at the first time, remember, Practice makes perfect. Okay, So you know what to do. I will not change Booth and speed up my process and in a match. But you know, you can always poor if you need more time. And this time I am quite happy how my second grade Ian turned out. I can't wait to see yours. I'm excited about the next effect as its one off my favorites. You think sawed onward, coffee pained. You can create amazing abstract patterns dot with a flat wash. That means that I wanted to your selected books first and then apply that coffee pained. And once more dagger shades were better for this technique. Okay. And again at speeds of up a little bit, You guys take your time. Okay? So, no, it's time for the thought. The pain still has to be wet so that it works well. That's why you should immediately after you're done with their wash, Sprinkle table or rock soared on it. To create the most impressive effect. I'm sprinkling table sold with the left and the bottom and at some rock flowing to the top of my books. Once we're done, we got a letter dry at best. Overnight. The thought will talk up the coffee paint and will live question or coral like penance. That's why this technique is grateful paintings off the underwater world or abstract backgrounds. Okay, so the next thing we're going to try out its lifting off Kobe pain from our painting and effect that is grateful. Creating irregular and highlighted shapes such as clouds and this guy. And as you may have noticed, I've already started with a flat wash here, so please do the same, but no very sick Allah doesn't have to be completely flat. The main thing is that it's which, and basically we have two different options. We can either lift off pain while it's their left, or when it's already drying. Where off course going to try both of them and with Dad was lifting off the wet paint. Now, using a paper towel eternal, typically, you can you have cotton heads, Q tips or a dry brush. Jeff lived off the pain in one part of your book, though if we want to you the other part for lifting off dry pain later on. And as you can see, the paper tower absorbed some off the pain and created a lighter area, which could actually really be a little cloud in the sky. Our next material riots works basically just a sword duff, but the affected safe. We look quite a bit different, and again Doc works better here, So let's do another fled wash with our dark coffee pained. Make sure that they're gonna be really, really wet. And even if you have a panel here or there, just leave it for the best resides, Springer writes on the background. Immediately after you're done with your wash, the rest going to suck up the water now and we'll leave marks on your paint. Beware though, that rice stuff not suck up water as much astrologers. Therefore, you will see your best with IVs in the wedge of areas. Once you're done with sprinkling your rice, give it enough time to dry at best overnight. Okay, so now it's actually a good time to continue with our blue or rob Ottoman Project from earlier as it should be. Dry, meanwhile, may be tested first So whenever you're ready, load up your pain brunch with some coffee, pained and start stroking. As you can see, the gloom over Wesemann works like a protective layer on the paper and will prevent the pain from spreading into these areas. So here comes the cool thing. If you have Robert Cement, you will be able to wrap it off after your pain. This try and this way you will be able to uncover the white areas that you can then paint on again or just leave them. Highlight it now with the glue. We can do this, but you get the idea. However, the glue creations are also cool, very abstract and even three dimensional. You may stay. Remember blowing paint with a straw from your preschooler days. We're going to try without if when. Oh, this time we start on a dry background pig and initial point and Chester of one drop off coffee paint on it, maybe using a spoon or just a fully loaded paintbrush. Then you blow it with a straw, but not to heart into different directions. If you want more ramification, you can also add more drugs and repeat. This technique is very through to Biffle, creating trees and branches or abstract look informations. What I like best about it. It's the unpredictability off which way our pain is going to choose when we blow it it through the straw. By the way, once you are done, you should give this little creation again. Enough time to get dry in particular. Don't tip your sheet of paper or your pain may flow into unwanted directions. I really can't wait to see your creations for our next technique. Spluttering. We're going to go a little bit wild. Prepare this wire. Agnes, please cover up all the surroundings off your selected books, either with paper or paper towers, the best with with fluttering, even a paint brush or toothbrush. Let's start with a paintbrush, any five of fine just loaded with wet coffee pain and either afflicted with your fingers or hidden on something like a spoon or another brush. Just if I'm doing the big, other brash or the more pain to absorb with it the big other speak of with a toothbrush. You normally get much fine off better, almost like spray the check for that. You don't have too much water on it or you may have a little accident. Just if I'm having here. The lettering is a really cool and simple effect, but also unpredictable. Effort can be hard at times to control the amount and size off your splashes. But as with everything, practice makes perfect. I also want to mention here whenever you work with very wet pain, Be careful. You can see me here not paying enough attention on a being careful enough and smearing my pain into the next box. Fortunately, it's Jeff Teague radiant. That didn't turn out that way. Anyway, if that happens to you, just staying come and you with a paper tone. Just have a little side note here. As I was really amazed by the effect that I got her left on my web pain, I decided to see if it has an effect on dry coffee pain. However, you don't need to try that unless you want to. As I personally found, it didn't seem to have a big effect either. But if I mentioned before these experiments may turn are different for everyone. The please don't forget to share your resigns. Okay, guys, What? We're gonna check out one more technique. We want to go back to lifting off pain this time on dry paint. Just went either a paintbrush, a paper town with a Q tip or whatever and start lifting off the dry paint. Don't use too much water and don't overwork your paper well, or the 30th may come off with the paint comparing lifting off. Why wet and dry, you will see that the outcome looks quite different. Generally, you can say both of these lifting off techniques are good to create lighter shades. Or maybe to correct previous mistakes in a painting that you won't be able to recreate completely wide area. Just beware offense. Brie on coming close to an end with our creative techniques, let's try out stamping now just taken area on your paper that you think could youth a little bit more excitement. I am, for example, taking my ruin grade in for stamping. Just apply coffee pain to you have selected object maybe by dipping it on a plate. If I'm doing wipe off excess pain first to avoid water resistance and start stamping easy peasy. And of course, if a whole bunch of things that you can youth was damping basically anything that have a texture observed. For example, it's sponges, pets, coins, corks, rocks and what not. I decided to try out a cork, a war, not a little sponge and a muffin form. In this order, you can be creative you with whatever you can find in your household. With this technique, you can be really creative and create all kinds of patterns and structures for both abstract and realistic paintings. And again, I'm going to speed up my stamping process here a little bit. You take your time, be creative and have fun. Okay, so before we finish happy, I wanted to show you how you can draw with a J pin on dry coffee. Pained, for example, to add pendants or text. If you have a Jap in paying any books and give it a try. If you don't have a jet up in, maybe try any pin that you have around and see how it works on coffee. I like to find my coffee paintings with Japan's, as I think it looks very and again. Next thing to do is very exciting. Sweep off the rice corns and thought off your paper with a dry and clean brash to see the final effect on your coffee pain. If the song sticks to the pain too much, you can also tip the paper and even rabbit off, using your brash handed by gently please. And what becomes visible will hopefully look really cool. I really love my thought. E creation. Okay, Yes. And another exciting moment. Let's remove the masking tape now, in case he used any But hey, poo it with care to avoid ripping off the paper together with the tape. And now, to complete this practice, I would highly recommend you to write down the names off the effects next to the according boxers. So you will always be able to remember what exactly? With it here. I'm going to show, you know, once more in the right order all the techniques that we tried out in this lesson and my finally thighs. You probably still remember how we started in the first part off this lesson with the basic techniques we did have fled wash where the color looks even, and I added some Japan late on, then ingredient from back to light. We tried out wet on wet which is great for blurry backgrounds, then went on dry, which is great for a realistic painting and last but not least, dry on wet, which looks a bit like rest city. In this part of the lesson, we then explored a variety of creative techniques, starting with the rebel ferment of Lou Experiment. We then dripped alcohol on wet and later on dry ST. We used a toothpick for the scratching techniques. Graffito with Brinker sawed on Web pain, which creates formations from another world. We practice lifting off wet and Dr Pain. We checked out what rice after coffee paint. Like priests. Quick, it's We blew around coffee pains using a straw to create unique structures. We split up with coffee pain, using a paintbrush into toothbrush, and we used some things with textured surface to Stam. Wow, what a lesson! I am so proud of you. You guys did it.
