Faux Artist Sponge Use and Care Instruction
Before Use: Soak sponge in clean water; squeeze out all excess and carefully examine entire sponge to insure any particles escaping our multi-level quality control are found and removed.
Painting with a Faux Artist Sponge: Dampen the sponge and wring out excess water.

When applying paint, use a light touch to roll the sponge over the wall or surface. Rinse your sponge thoroughly before changing colors and upon completion of the project.
