Step no 3

you can get Sponging Off style by coating an even coat of glaze on the solid wall base using a roller or brush a brush. As the glaze about to dry remove some of it with a sponge that it shows undercoating surface. For this technique you must work with a natural sea sponge rather than using a household synthetic type for more natural finishing and texture.
