The sponge is cut into half expertly to give you a true flat surface for applying effects, while the curved side at the back provides the perfect grip in your hands. Now you don’t need to worry about cutting a whole sponge and risk having it fall to pieces. Our experts provide you with a half sponge that maintains full strength with a guaranteed working surface. Small chunks can be cut off from outside edge for use in detailing.

The size options allow you to choose the exact length of the working area you require for the task at hand. The corresponding width you receive will be around 70% to 100% of the length chosen due to the natural variation of sea sponges.

The flat surface of the sponge has bigger holes and so gives a broader, spaced out pattern. The curved surface of the sponge has a fluffier nature allowing you to create finer patterns. Possible effects include Texturing, Sponging, Marbling, Faux Finishes, staining, stippling and many more. For certain paint types such watercolours remember to dampen the sponge before using. .

One of the key advantages of the sponge is that it’s made from 100% natural and organic materials. By opting for this sponge, you are choosing a sustainable alternative that helps reduce your carbon footprint. Unlike conventional sponges that often end up in landfills, this sponge decomposes naturally, leaving no harmful impact on the environment.

Size Guide

We recommend a size that would sit comfortably in the palm of your hand. Here is a guide with sizes measured on the longest length:

For art and craft projects: 10cm to 13cm

For wall decorating: 15cm


These steps will help you get the best out of your sponge.

Using your sponge

  1. Wet the sponge in warm water until completely soaked and soft. Squeeze to remove excess water but avoid wringing.
  2. Apply small amount of soap or body wash. Squeeze a few more times to generate lather.
  3. The sponge is now ready and will soften with each use.

Cleaning your sponge

On a regular basis you may remove any dirt or odours with these steps.
  1. Prepare a mixture of 1 tbsp baking soda to 1 cup water in a bowl.
  2. Soak for 15 mins
  3. Rinse with clean water

After use simply squeeze all water out and hang up in a dry area
