Create a great new look for any room when painting. Use a clean kitchen sponge and dip into any shade of paint. It can be lighter or darker for a dramatic effect. Either sponge on the whole wall or any place; top near ceiling or along any part of the wall. Be creative! You can even use a gold or silver paint dabbed around! Have fun!

This is more of a decorating tip then a craft tip, but when I am faux painting the walls of my home, I use the pages of an old phone book to remove excess paint from my sponge, rag, or feather duster. I just keep the flipping pages to get a fresh new surface to dab the extra paint off.
You can faux paint by using plastic grocery bags instead of sponges or rags.
