 How to Blend With Sponges - Face Paint Tutorial

The secret to blending is of course having the right sponge, as well as having a clean and dry sponge, so you can easily blend your colors. Blending light into dark is a good way to go, and also having colors that are closer to the same side of the color wheel tend to blend the best.

Usually you want to start with the lighest color first, so I'm going to start with yellow. Wet your sponge and put down the base (your lightest color) first. Then, add in the next darker color (light blue). To that, add the third darkest color (dark blue), and finish off with a dark purple (the darkest color in the wheel).

Wet your sponge, apply the paint, and take the dry part of the sponge or the lightest part of your sponge to blend the colors together.
