Sponging On - Part 2


STEPS 4-7 of 10

Add more colors. This technique offers a wonderful opportunity to use the color wheel in selecting color.

Start, for instance, with a monochromatic scheme. Enhance that scheme by sponging on a different tint
or shade of the base color.

To add a gentle depth, sponge on an analogous color. To make a bolder statement, sponge on a complementary hue. To generate subtle excitement, sponge on colors that form a triad on the color wheel.

If you add a color that you don’t like, sponge over it with another color. That’s the beauty of painting: A fix is just a brush (or a sponge) away.

Sponging On START SPONGING in an upper corner. Prime the sponge with water and squeeze out the excess. Tear off a small piece of sponge to reach inside corners. Be fluid and rotate the sponge.

 

 

 

Sponging On SPONGE FROM THE TOP to the bottom of the wall in a strip as wide as your arm is long.

 

 

 

 

Sponging On SWING YOUR ARM IN A RADIUS, not in a square pattern. Rotate the sponge occasionally.

 

 

 

 

sponging On CARRY A CLEAN RAG in your other hand, and blot the sponge before starting each new section.
