I am using a car sponge to apply gold Probrite paint. I LOVE this sponge and have been using it for years.
This is a piece of fabric I used to blot some black paint. When dried I took a damp sponge and wiped Buttercream ProBrite paint all over the misted surface so that the mica would add sparkle.
In very bright sun so you can see the overall shine. This fabric actually looks like the photo above.
