Lightbulb sponge or rag painting walls

I wish to either sponge or rag my newly plastered wall. Is there a difference in look? Seems to me to be about the same. How do i go about it?

Have a look at this thread. There are many examples of each technique. I personally prefer a more subtle, softer look, so ragging, cheesecloth or fresco are my favorites. It is easier to take glaze off than put it ON when you're new to the techniques. Practice on a sheet of cardboard, drywall, spare wall, closet...first, to get the hang of things.
