One artist is making good use out of regular kitchen sponges.
TikTok user artinveins describes her work as “satisfying art.” She utilizes multiple techniques for each piece, starting with a pencil sketch and then incorporating stencils and sponge paints. The artist has amassed a hefty following of over 96,000 — likely because the final product of her art is usually equally as interesting as the process itself.
In one drawing, Artinveins uses color pencils and markers to draw and color a woman’s face. But she doesn’t fill in the subject’s hair. Instead, she created a stencil with the exact same dimensions of the bob.
She layers the stencil over the original image, then uses a sponge with rainbow paint to pat color onto the hair. When artinveins lifts the stencil, the bob is perfectly colored in with a super cool rainbow gradient. The simple but effective tutorial was watched over 2 million times.
In an homage to Addison Rae, the TikTok-famous dancer, artinveins colored in everything but Rae’s slip dress.
Artinveins used the same stencil method to give the dress a warm-toned gradient with red, orange, yellow and a pop of green for the straps.
“Woaah… Thats Cool!” one user wrote.
“I love your pictures,” one person commented.
“It’s so cool and cute. I like your designs,” another said.
