Have you ever wondered how colors relate to each other when making color choices for sponge finishes. During this class you will be combining several colors and witness how they complement and even enhance one another. The art of sponging or rubbing colors started with early man and cave drawings. This craft provides you with the opportunity to learn a color rubbing technic and how to layer or frame your art. The finished product is a greeting card you will be proud to share.
Analogous colors are colors that are within three spots of each other on the color wheel. When sponging finishes, analogous colors make a calm statement because of their closeness on the color wheel.
Complementary colors are colors directly opposite each other on the color wheel. These colors provide the most amount of contrast and work very well together. When sponging with complementary colors, use the darkest color first and sponge the lighter color over the top of it. Sponge complementary colors on focal points where you want to make a strong statement.
