We were delighted to have stumbled upon the amazing work of Red Hong. Red is what you might like to call an artist-architect. She likes to paint, but not with a paintbrush.
This portrait is made up of hundreds of individual coffee stain rings, many of them broken and imperfect, forming a this portrait. The project took Red Hong about 12 hours to complete.
"Coffee is quite a challenging medium to use - too little water and the rings wouldn't form easily, too much water and the rings would blend into each other, resulting in just a deformed pool of coffee. I had to also wait for the lighter parts too dry up before stamping on the darker rings, or else the rings would not be visible."
