Scenic Painting
Scumbling is the application of a fine layer of paint with a very dry brush.
You can scumble with sponges or brushes. Contrast can be high or low or anywhere in between.
Quite simple... It's basically splattering paint onto something
To make it, load a small amount of paint onto a brush or, even an old toothbrush, then flick it towards the paper.
Running a palette knife through the brush to flick the paint can work too.
Dry Brushing
It's basically what the name suggests... Some paint is put on a dry brush, and then when it's used, it makes a broken, scratchy effect.
A wash is a painting technique where a paint brush that is really wet with solvent and holds only some paint used on a wet or dry support such as paper or primed or raw canvas. The drybrush technique can be considered the opposite of a wash.
A wash is done by using a lots of solvent with only a little paint.
Marbling is yet again just as the name suggests... A technique to make something look like genuine marble.
To make a marble glaze, you need to use oil glaze. The ones that are used are white, black, raw umber, veridian, and sienna.
The items needed are: a soft bristle brush and a badger brush. A clean rag. Wax for the last coat. Last, but definitely not least, some experience and a lot of time is needed....

When a tree such as an Oak or a Mahogany is cut open, an intricate pattern is found in the wood. This is replicated in Wood Grain Painting.
One of the most famous of these woods is the Mahogany, so we will go over how that is made....
For this, you would need water based glazes.
You also need a brush or roller
The colored paints that you want
A damp, clean rag
A soft and a long Bristle Brush.
A 1 inch artist's brush
And of course some wood to do this on (any wood would work fine.
Sponging is the use of a sponge to dab that sponge paint across a wall and you end up with a pretty unique look. When you're finished, the results are absolutely amazing. The texture of the sponge is transferred onto the wall leaving a beautiful pattern.
Here's what you need:
Two different colors of paint
Glazing Liquid
Paint brush or roller
A Sea sponge
Lots of Paper Towels
After sponging on the paints, it ends up looking something like...

* Two or three faux stone glazes
* Paint brush
* Masking tape
Although it can also be done with sponges, so in that case,
