Instant Coffee Tinting Technique Tutorial

This is how the technique looks once it is dry

This is a great and easy way to get a vintage feel from your paint.

Substrate - Tag with vintage collage background
Acrylic Paint - Golden Glaze
Paint brush

Paint with instant coffee before blending


1. On a palette, mix acrylic paint and instant coffee.  If you don't over mixed you will get spots of dark brown.

2.  Paint your substrate.  If the paint is too intense you can use a dry brush technique or spray with water to lighten the paint.  I painted a tag with a collage of vintage papers.  I used a dry brush technique.

3.  Let dry.
This technique was used on the background of this tag.
