    2 ways:

    1. Grab the rotate tool and rotate the stencil.

    - OR -

    2. Right click the stencil and select "Set Stencil Angle", where you type in a value.

    For the next wish, what do you mean by "highlight" on a layer?

    Dear Pentool, thank you so very much,,,KISS applied here, keep it simple stupid! knew i could move a layer but never noticed i could spin the stencils,,, thank you again,,, regarding the highlights quest,, i learned to press key F5 to take off the highlights of the paint, it makes the painting look like flat paint was used, no shine, sometimes i would be painting something and like the effect to have some shine and some flat, in the last quicky i did i would have liked to have some areas with the wet shine and some of it flat, too much to ask??? or maybe already possible??? with great ArtRagers like yourself i'm sure there is help xox

    Regarding removing the wet shine from areas...

    Here's a trick where you can selectively remove bump and shine. Create a new layer. Set the layer blend mode to 'Multiply'. Set the layer bump blend mode to 'replace'.
    Select the airbrush tool, and select the colour white (with no metallics).

    You can now airbrush on your 'multiply' layer to selectively removed the bump and highlights from all the layers beneath, without affecting the colour at all.

    Dear Andy, thank your for your help ,,,! think i have put something with highlights onto a flat picture, will post it here, it is my last post, i exported it, then imported it , put a fresh layer on top and then a gold leaf, the one gold leaf on top, i think that is what i was trying to do, not that is has anything to do with the actual painting here, just that sometimes i like the look of the flat paint then wanted to ad a touch of metalic with highlights,, thanks again,,,

    Two more options:

    holding down the Alt key allows you to rotate the stencil

    Change one layer to opaque white and set the layer option to shadow or tint, and because it is white, it will be see through, but it will hide all the lighting effects for any layers underneath. Then move the 'metallic' layers on top.

    Or paint it white, and erase areas, like with the airbrush method.
