I want to spone paint a very light cream color over white for a very delicate look. Do you think this will work and will a sea sponge do the trick? How should I thin the paint? Basically it is just to give the living area some personality not just a solid color.

ineedadvice, A sea sponge is one of many tools that will work but is the clear choice for your project. I doubt any thinning would be needed....Mike

Sea sponges are my personal favorite. I don't thin my paints or use glaze. Right from the can, then pour some onto a paper plate and then dab off the extra onto a papertowel before the walls. You may want to use a total of 3-4 different shades. I used 3 that were all various white and cream shades. I now wish I had added a bit of pale blue or blush just for a bit of color, but, I am really happy with what I have. Good luck and don't panic, remember, sponging is very forgiving!
