Used to create direct to paper backgrounds etc. A small sponge is tapped onto your ink pad and then softly rotated in a circular motion on your artwork transferring the colour. Working from the lightest shades of ink through to your darkest shades and repeating with the same shade if a fuller or richer colour is desired.
The transfer of ink to paper using a small sponge (usually a cosmetic or craft sponge) in place of a brush. The ink is applied to the sponge and then the sponge is dabbed/tapped lightly onto a piece of paper leaving a series of small dots. A sponge with many holes, squeezed tightly while sponging, will produce a beautiful lacy effect.
