      Mona Lisa made out of coffee and holding a coffee! Thats hilarious! The earth tones you get from using coffee are nice.

      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.

      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.
