Using the natural Sea Sponge to paint furniture
Use our natural Sea Sponge to Create The Look of the Gray Veil Finish by using the Colors of Sweden Gustav and Linnea paints and Sheer Smoke Glaze.
One of the reason I love using the Sea Sponge in painting furniture it helps imitate the aged beauty and mottled effects often seen in the 18 century Swedish Gustavian Style furniture.
Here are some examples:
How to Create the Look
Step 1 – Clean the surface with Krud Kutter Gloss Off or Simple Green
Step 2 – Pour Gustav paint onto a foam plate. Sponge paint Gustav using a water dampened Sea Sponge covering abut 90% of the surface. Allow to dry.
