    Time for a cuppa? Coffee or tea colored open ATC swap!


    Time for another weird art challenge swap! Everybody say YAYY!

    Ever taken a drink from your paint water? Dipped your paintbrush in the wrong cup? Fret no more! In this swap, it is obligatory!
    (almost.... you are still kinda using different cups, but for the effect, just bear with me )


    In this swap, you will use liquids that usually don't qualify as paint. Instead of watercolor, the given medium in this swap is coffee or tea!

    How? Does it even work?!?!

    It works wonderfully! Use normal coffee or tea, make it stronger for darker nuances. You can use instant coffee, ground coffee, tea bags, tea leaves, coffee beans - any form of tea or coffee is allowed as medium. Experiment with different kinds of tea to create different nuances!


    Art by: Dragonalloy, EvisceratedUnicorn

    You and your imagination set the limits! The swap is open themed - create any kind of art you are proud of keeping to the following rules:

    Medium allowed: Coffee, tea, fineliner or ink, pencil
    Size: Standard ATC 2,5x3,5''
    Original art only - no prints

    Please remember: Even though this is a challenge, and the medium might be new to you; please remember to put effort into your art! No one wants a ruined wreck in their returns. If you are unsure about the quality, please contact me!


    MAILING:
    Please PM me for my address when you're ready to send your cards. Since I am based in Germany, I have decided to set a send by date. It's easier for everyone that way, seeing as delivery across seas can be somewhat fickle..
    Note for all players: I haven't moved since iATCs opened, just ask if you need my address again!
    PLEASE communicate when you send your cards! This way, I can keep track of everyone easier.

    Please include:
    International players, please send $1 to help cover p&p. A global forever stamp is fine as well! Paypal has become really expensive lately, so if you can't chip in, that's fine as well. Any German players - add a 70 Cent stamp.
    Please include a sticky address LABEL. This makes everything SO MUCH faster on my side!

    Lurking! I'm completely intrigued by using coffee and tea as a painting medium - I've never done it before! I want to give it a try before committing but I am definitely interested!

    I played with this a bit last week (& am about to play some more). For anyone who's painted with coffee/tea, how do you get your really dark tones? I'm working with regular Folgers coffee (nothing swanky in this house lol), and i spent 3 days coming back to cards to add more & more layers... it only got to what i would want to be a mid range color. So i went & boiled some coffee down into sludge (which stinks btw) & it got a tad darker... then i bought some instant coffee & mixed it hella thick: still not dark enough. Any suggestions?

    *For the record I'm having loads of fun experimenting, just wondering if anyone else has any tricks to share!

    @Tea - I started out with a normal cold brew, boiling one cup for ten minutes and a second one for about 25 minutes. The darkest color you can see undiluted in her hair. It was slightly syrup-y, but smells divine! Other than that, I used the colors like liquid watercolor, which worked pretty well
