Naturally the best sponges in the world!

Just like natural hair paintbrushes are better at holding color and water, so natural sponges are better than synthetic when it comes to artistic use. Natural sponges not only hold color and water between their fibers, but absorb it directly into the fiber itself, allowing for greater color load and longer application time. New Aphrodite Natural Sponges are carefully harvested in Greece under strict control to keep them free of any contaminates, and are available in a wide array of sizes and textures for any myriad of artistic uses! Among some of the many uses for natural fiber paint sponges are:

  • Ceramics - For thousands of years, natural hair sponges have been used in ceramics and pottery as a smoothing aide. Potters need slurry to keep their pieces smooth and moist, and nothing brings water to the potter more efficiently than a natural fiber sponge!
  • Faux Finishing - 'Sponging on' and 'sponging off' are both highly popular forms of faux finish techniques, among many others involving sponges. The irregular texture of natural fiber sponges makes for the most organic, interesting patterns and they not only hold more color but allow for a more controlled release.
  • Watercolor Painting - Watercolorists have long been in love with the natural sponge! Sponges can be used for wetting paper, or for absorbing excess saturation. As sponges have no hair, they leave none behind on the paper like brushes can do. Perfect for lifting paint and for softening and blending colors, natural sponges are indispensible in the watercolor studio!
  • Acrylic Painting - Use Aphrodite natural sponges to achieve organically textured effects in acrylics, to wipe, smooth, and blend colors, even use in place of a brush for direct application! The possibilities of expression are limitless when you combine sponges with acrylic paints.
  • Oil Painting - Natural sponges are fantastic for applying thin glazes of color, and new quick-dry mediums mean multiple layers can be applied over a short period of time to build up depth and refraction, while the sponges will not leave trace hairs behind in the layers! Sponges can also be loaded with liquid oil colors and used in dripping and spattering techniques, or with solvents for wiping and smudging.
  • ...and many more!

Painting Sponges Aphrodite Natural is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sponges I bought one of these sponges from another art store a year ago for my Soho acrylic's, and to my amazement, it did really good! Not only was it great for liquidified acrylic's, but also for picking up the wet paint as well for cloud and water effects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Watercolor Sponges I am going to share these with several other people. Nice selection and size variation. Will make putting texture in my paintings so much easier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for texture These sponges are great for adding texture for watercolor, and gouache. I gave only 4 stars because the sponges were all exactly alike, and I thought I was getting a variety--however, they break into handy pieces, and the texture does vary some in the size of the texture, so I'm glad I have them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was using the sponge as suggested in my art class to apply gesso to a wood panel. Pieces of the sponge kept coming off as I moved the sponge across the surface. It might work better for faux finishes,
