Re: Help for granite

You want to get a natural sea sponge, I rip them down to about 2x3". Wet the sponge and ring it out, this way an oil glaze will not adhere to it. You want to applu the glaze in a positive, which means lay your glase out in a cooking sheet with sides on it. Then dab your sponge into it lightly and dab some off so you do not over load the sponge. Apply the glaze lightly around the entire area dabbing it to the surface. Repeat with 2 more colors or more if you like.
