Coffee Painting - Man & Woman Pattern

Hope you are enjoying festive winter season with your family. Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to my readers. I am feeling good & encouraged by numerous compliments – both online & offline – for my first Coffee Painting - Egyptian Queen Pattern. I thought to give another try on another pattern. In this coffee painting I had given some texture in the background & colored it with white and Metallic Golden color. While coloring the man face I have added a drop of red color to coffee, rest of the pattern is colored using coffee.

Here is the pattern which you can right click & save at your desktop for free…

Coffee Painting - Egyptian Queen Pattern - DIY

Enjoying Coffee during winter is so wonderful but trust me making Coffee Painting is a wonderful experience. You don’t get such a rich look and texture with any other paint. Mix coffee and water to get different shades of brown color. I made an Egyptian Queen, here’s the procedure.
Material used for Coffee Painting
  • Coffee Powder
  • Canvas Board
  • Outliner (Gold and Black color)
  • Varnish
  • Paint brush
Procedure for Coffee Painting
  • Draw or trace the design on canvas board and then outline it with golden color outliner. Let it dry.
  • Mix Coffee and water to get different shades. Use less water to get darker shade and more and more water for light to lighter shades.
  • Let it dry and apply varnish to get more shine.
  • And finally, frame it and hang it and enjoy compliments.
Here is my Coffee Painting: Egyptian Queen Pattern for you.

Ceramic Mural – DIY Painting Tutorial

Last month I had some interior work at home. As usual there were some leftover wooden pieces and white cement. I had heard about ceramic Mural and thought to give a try. Here is how I made it.

Materials used for Ceramic Mural

  • Wooden Piece (Desired size).
  • White cement.
  • Fevicol (Adhesive).
  • Faber Castle Metallic Color (Gold, Copper, Bronze color).
  • Copper color outliner (optional).
  • Ganesh idol (You can choose any idol).

Step By Step Procedure for Ceramic Mural

Mix white cement and Fevicol. Make a thick paste and apply all over wooden board. Let it dry for 5-10 minutes and make some desired texture with help of pen/pencil or any thick stick.

  • I had started with the corner of wooden piece, had given curve texture then zigzag with help of pen. In the middle I had given this texture with the help of paint brush. Let it dry for overnight.

A Creative Hobby Idea – Golden Foil Paper Art

Once enjoying my Dairy Milk, a Creative Art Idea struck my mind! Why not make something interesting with golden foil which is used to wrap a Chocolate? I took a plywood piece and started executing my idea. Here’s a list of material, procedure and picture of my art work.

Hobby-Foil-Paper-Art

Material used for Foil Paper Art

  • Piece of plywood.
  • Asian Paint (Black color)
  • Silver Foil (Which is generally used to wrap food)
  • Golden Foil (Kuchh meetha ho jaaye)
  • Fevicol (any adhesive) Scissor

Procedure for Foil Paper Art

  • Apply black paint on plywood and let it dry.
  • In my Foil Paper Art I have made a tree and a few birds on it. I have used silver foil for tree and moon, and golden foil for birds.
  • So first I have cut and pasted silver foil for tree, branches and leaves. Be careful while handling foil paper as they are very delicate.
  • Then I have cut and pasted birds accordingly.

A Million $ Tip for Free: For birds, draw the outline on backside of Golden Foil first and then cut it with scissor or cutter.
