Sponge Painting in multiple colors

Sponge Painting in multiple colors


Hello, I’m Sandy Silva and I’m president of Murals and Faux Painting in Miami. One of the most popular forms of decorative painting that continues to grow is Faux, F A U X Finishing. Now when I
started 10 years ago this business many refer to it as spongy or ragging, but really that’s just two forms of faux finishing. Now there are a variety of methods and systems out there to achieve various finishes but I would
like to share with this brief video what I believe, as a professional,
is the fastest easiest way to achieve beautiful, elegant
finishes without complicated and messy steps. Now there are a lot of texture finishes out there but some of them require expensive materials and glazes. But I have found that the most popular
and requested faux finishes are still the simple ones. As sponging is one of the most easiest
and basic types of faux finishing out there. But even
with most methods, you still are required to blot your
sponge on paper then proceed to faux a two foot section
and then you repeat the process, which you can see that in high areas this
can be quite exhausting. But with the Triple S Faux
System’s Multi Color Faux Palette, you get just the amount of glaze you need to sponge up to 50 square feet without reloading. To begin we loaded our palette with our prepared glazes. The great thing about this tool is we can
faux multiple colors at the same time. We’ve loaded our palette with two sections of dark green, one of burnt umber and three of golden
brown. Now we take a sponge and press it onto the palette, getting some color of each section and then pressing it onto the wall. As we
go along we vary the position of the sponge. As
you can see, we’re getting the imprint of the sponge with all three colors. We
overlap the imprint sometimes to vary the look of texture on the board.
We can always come back to any section we feel has too much of the base coat
showing through. Our board was painted with a light tan
color for our base coat. With this finish, there’s no need to
feather out any sections that butts up to another because lap
lines or seams do not show. Because you’re only using a small amount of glaze each time, you can press the sponge and easily faux an entire wall without stopping. Here’s our board up close. Now if we want a more subtle effect, we would stay within one family of color
for our base coat and glaze. Has sponging multiple colors on a wall ever been so fast? For more
