Make a Coffee Bean Mosaic

video Make a Coffee Bean Mosaic
A friend of mine asked me to make some artwork to put up on the walls of his coffee shop! I have been really excited to get started on these pieces and I have a few different ideas I would like to try out. The first one is this Coffee Bean Mosaic. It isn't like the traditional mosaics that you will see online in that I have painted over all of the coffee beans instead of using their natural colour. Thanks so much for watching! xo Steph :)

Steph - this looks amazing - I love how it turned out. I loved when you spun the paints around - so funny! The end result is beautiful and probably smells amazing too!

Thank you for a great idea. My daughter and I will have fun for the rest of the year making mosaics for our home. The smell of coffee is always so welcoming.

You can do a lot with beans, dried pasta, whatever, actually. :)

Yes, you're totally right - I was a bit concerned when I first started the project that it had the potential to turn out looking like one of those macaroni things I made in kindergarten!
Very beautiful, but I wonder why you need to paint everything first? Because at the end you don't see the painting anymore....
The base paint does help the overall effect of it because you can actually see in between all the beans when it's finished - I know it's hard to tell from the picture, but thanks for checking out my ible and commenting! :)

I'm so glad you liked it! To be honest though, I can't see myself making another one - it took a really long time! :)

Taking a break to smell the beans for a while made me laugh more than a little.

Also enjoyed the project, turned out nice.
