Thread: sponge effect

  1. #1

    sponge effect


    I am looking to recreate the effect of the trees in the attached image, they are made with mask fluid and sponge...

    so i worked out that i can make a custom stencil..

    and so far playing with all the tools the closest i can get to a sponge is with the paint roller... which isnt bad.. but feel i could get it a bit more spongey

    has anybody got any recommendations?

    Experiment with canvas textures. You may find one that will duplicate or come close to the look you want.

    Chalk and Crayon with a large stroke (You can scale larger than 100% by shift dragging or typing the value), low pressure/softness settings, and a light touch, both produce fairly "spongy" effects, depending on canvas texture settings.
