A sponge effect is a textured paint finish that can be used to create interesting visual effects on walls. It is created by applying a thin layer of paint over a textured surface, such as an existing wall or piece of fabric. The paint will seep into the pores of the surface, creating a raised, bumpy effect. Sponge painting is a simple way to add texture and visual interest to a room without having to make major changes to the existing décor.
