Many people love to do faux painting, that is great if you know what you and doing and use correct supplies to do the job. One of the biggest mistakes I see is people doing the easiest specialty painting technique sponge painting. It can be easy and fun and look really great or look terrible. The difference is simply the products that are not used correctly.
So often I see people who do a specialty paint technique called sponge painting. It is latterly exactly what it says…you use a sponge to put paint on the wall. Seems simple enough, but when it is applied incorrectly it looks like a small child has been let loose paint and a sponge. I don’t want to seem harsh, but the reality is that applied correctly it is a great look, but when it is done incorrectly it looks like a mistake.
The most important part of this painting technique is the paint medium, or extender. This is what takes a wall from amateur to pro. Amateurs simply take a sponge (we will talk about the best kind sponge) and just put the paint on. To look like a pro use a good quality medium or extender. The medium or extender (it has several names, if in doubt ask the paint store salesperson), is the product that makes the paint transparent and extends the drying time.
