- For this technique it is recommended to use colors with deep pigment.

- Place the following colors onto a palette: SC-74 Hot Tamale, SC-75 Orange-A-Peel and SC-76 Cara-bein Blue.
- Using the conditioned sponge, pick up one of the colors at a time and sponge the color onto the stamp. Repeat with the remaining colors till all of the stamp is covered.
- Position the stamp onto the piece. Using your fingertips, press the stamp all over the back surface of the stamp. Remove the stamp.
- Repeat steps #5 and #6 till the piece is covered with the desired amount of stamping.
- Clean the sponge and stamps.
