I chose the colors that I thought would look feminine and soft in the end and smudged them on a wet sponge.
Wet down the box ....
and sponged away.
Someone needs to take this sponge away from me - I want to sponge paint everything now.
This was the result. I let it dry completely. Because it's acrylic paint - it only took about 5 minutes.
Then I went outside so Wes could dig in the dirt and the dog could get some fresh air. The lighting out here is much better. I got out the best and girliest color I could find - pink and blocked in a fairy shape.
I then played with Wes and the dog for a half hour and came back in the house. I started adding darker paint and lighter paint to areas that needed it.
I went to work, came home at 9:15, cleaned the house, ate dinner and finished.
