    7. Mix together White with a very small amount of Black. Wet your sea sponge and squeeze out all of the excess moisture. Lighten pounce the sea sponge with a little paint randomly on the coaster. Pounce in the same general direction for a streaky look.

    9. Mix a little bit more black into the previous mix with a little bit of water, make this mix just slightly too dark. Using a round brush, lightly make random streaks of mix over sponged areas. Once it has dried, brush a thin coat of White over the surface.
