This is a coffee cup painted with coffee...for the online class. I am not spilling any secrets here so I can show you this. We were to paint a favourite cup with coffee. So I took this assignment seriously, and with a little glee. As you know I don't like coffee, usually I will have a hot chocolate or on the other side of this coffee shop is a bagel place that sells diet coke. So first off went to the bagel side got myself a diet coke, then went to the coffee side, first I ordered a low fat orange cranberry muffin, my favourite, then just like a big coffee drinker, said one black coffee. Now this is where he got me, and he knew this was no coffee drinker this was a big pretender. I said what kind do you have, he gave me this look like lady just order something else. I bravely stuck to guns, and made him rattle of the coffee names. Then I gave him the kicker, and said with a smile I just want really black coffee, do you have any of that? So he looked at me and thought,( I could read his mind), is this lady nuts or what. Then I gave in and said I will have a cup from that pot over there. He watched me the whole way over to put the lid on the coffee and sit down, and open my diet coke. That's when he went to the other worker and I sure said some nasty things about the coffee lady, who just took up 5 minutes of his valuable time and had a diet coke with her muffin. I gleely laughed into my diet coke. OK I like a little controversy now and then.
Anyway this is the picture, I made it like an experiment. And in the end concluded there will be no more painting with coffee, I don't like it, its not dark enough. In the end I added neo colour crayon in orange mixed with the coffee and dried and was able to manipulate the dryer so it made some darker marks.
