PATINA
It is a Technique of painting that seeks to give a sensation of transparencies and shades on the painting; usually it gives an aged aspect to the walls.
You can work the patina either with the same color applied in different tones, or with two or more colors.

SPONGY
Working with a sponge, the intended effect is to stain or mark. The type of texture achieved will vary depending on the sponge used, natural (vegetable or marine) or synthetic. You can also combine more than one color.

TRAPEADO
Similar technique, but the stain is made with cloth, apply with gentle strokes touring the texture of the cloth, rubbed in vertical or horizontal form, and rotating the canvas on the wall. It can also apply combined shades of the same or different colors.

STENCIL
This is the impression of an image on the wall based on templates
Nowadays there are stickers through which is also possible to print a picture on the wall, but this can be changed more easily than in the case of the stencil, allowing to renew the design without affecting the base paint.
They behave like sophisticated stickers. There are thousands of designs from the simplest to quite complex ones, and they are in most cases easy to place.

SPATULATE
You work with a spatula to generate reliefs on the wall and then carry on painting using different techniques.
