You paint the wall a base coat color. This color will show through the finished look. Then take a sea sponge and dip in a different color (lighter or darker - depending on the effect you want) and blot it on paper towel or rag, then lightly blot it randomly on the wall - all the while turning the sponge in different directions (so all the spots don't look the same). You can apply up to 3 colors. Be sure not to fill in ALL the space. It looks better sparse.
