Jade Tea by NadezhdaVasile Jade Tea by NadezhdaVasile
My entry for *raka-raka's contest about her characters from "Jade Eyes"

The theme of the contest was "Tea", so I thought 'awesome, gonna make a TEA PAINTING!!!'... how naive of me, thinking that different blends of tea could make substantial colours differences :DDDD (not to mention that it took me hours and tons of layering to achieve a visible shading!)
Note to self: just drink the tea next time.

But still, here's my attempt :giggle:
it was drawn in pencil and painted with green tea, red fruits tea and a "classic blend" tea, which I suppose stands for "let's just put random tea leafs together".
Highlights were added later with white acrylic.

In any case, this is the best smelling painting I ever made *_*

I dyed a bra with tea once, but it didn't stay through a wash because I don't know how to make dyes stick to fabric. I'd hoped it would stain it. Pomegranate and blueberry teas would create a purplish red hue, if you wanted to do another tea painting.

Looks lovely!
