Default Baby wipe technique and painting

Okay, just discovered this technique and it is breathtaking. So, mind was churning. I have been trying to come up with a way to create a sunset look in my bedroom, would anyone know how you could use this technique to paint a bedroom. Please, anyone.

I have just been painting my bedroom and adding sponged colors one over the top of the other. My thought is that a sponge is much tougher than a baby wipe... baby wipes (even a giant package) would probably not hold up for the hours it takes to do a wall. And, paint probably would not really work with baby wipes in the way that ink does.
All in all, I think you could create the effect that you want more easily with sponges and paint. Ask at a local paint store for a flyer with instructions for various techniques for painting. Or the library has books on various techniques. Or watch "The Painted House" on HGTV.... something new and different every time.

I agree with GarnetJ, babywipes won't hold up. Try sponging or using a wadded up rag. There are awesome paint effects books that you probably can get at the local library. They might even have the sunset and paint/technique tips right in there. I have a humble little ranch and love to try things on my walls. I've learned the hard way to practice on a largish piece of primed plywood or a small wall area. My first attempt at my bathroom resulted in 9 coats of paint before I was satisfied with the color combination and the effect! Every time I get those dreamy thoughts about how I might change up a room, I go sit in my bathroom for a bit! It reminds me about that important "in between" step. Have fun with your project!
