How did they achieve this effect with painting?

Recommended Posts

First post. Have found a lot of useful info in these forums, but now I came across something that I can't seem to find the answer to.

I found these pictures, and I really like how they painted this, but I can't figure out how they did it. All I know is they did it all by hand, not airbrush. 

Can someone explain to me how to achieve this? 

Thanks in advance. Tom

It looks like sponge work.

it looks like it was sponged on, either paint or dye then the notes, snail were painted. I think you could create the mottled effect with either, with some practice. Beautiful work indeed.

I guess I just have to grab a sponge and start trying some stuff out and keep practicing then. :) 

Thanks for the answers.
