I've also painted with instant tea (slightly different shade of brown) and mustard. Interesting. Kids love it because, well, they play with their food anyway! Beautifully done.

PAINTDRIPS: That's very interesting! I've only ever painted with regular paint and usually acrylic paint. I'll have to try tea or coffee someday.
