Makeup sponges make some amazing artistic effects. Cutting them into different shapes and holding them in different ways as you stamp them on your painting allows you to create different shapes that repeat and repeat. I love using them to make leaves and trees.

There are many brands and shapes of makeup sponge. My current favorite are the triangle ones but the fun thing about creativity is that you never know what’s going to happen next. Here are some examples of paintings done with makeup sponges.

If you want more detail on how to use them, this is a great time to sign up for some lessons! We will really be focusing on using them in the next months.
