Coffee Paintings...Believe It or Not?

Sunshine Plata is a Filipino artist who uses coffee grounds instead of paint. While looking for a cheaper alternative to oil paints, she came across a 19th Century signature rendered in coffee at a Ripley's...Believe It or Not! Museum.

She became inspired and began to paint her own coffee art. She enjoys the unique aroma and eco-friendly nature of the "paint" and is able to control the gradations of color using different proportions of grounds and water.
