That's really good Heikki. Did you tap the oil brush over and over without sliding it? Making a stipple effect? Nice work.

Thanks David.

Yes i made it like you wrote..tap without sliding... clicking mouse it quite fast to do... i think that it is usefull method...can make how i say soft and smooth oil-layer.

Hey Heikki,
that's very neat. It's amazing what we all can come up with, given a set of tools.

I don't understand the process (call me a dumb) Could you give me "step by step" explanation?

Out off topic: how do you dock /undock the layers try?

Hi Heikki,

I tried your method in making grains, as long as I did understand it.

You can see the result here :

The grain is not very uniform but is OK for me.:D

This is more clear as image.

What do you think about it ?

cant you make a grain texture with the glitter brush with "Metallic" property at 0?? i mean .. just wondering. i am a newbie. How did you do it with oil paint and so even? have you shared it somewhere?
