    Burnished?

    ,,, sort of a neat thing happened, just fooling around, made a little flower outline, made it into a stencil, filled it in with colors, then use the stencil on a new layer and filled it in with glitter, merged all layers,,,went over the whole thing with the pallet knife and surprise! it burnished the glitter outline, looks enameled maybe? or leaded? pretty cool!!!!

    That is a great discovery, looks great in metals .... wonder if it looks like piped icing in less metallic colours.

    That's very cool effect Lee. You are actually blurring the glitter. The blur palette knife setting is in your first post. 87% pressure 0% softness.
    Really does look like it's being burnished.

    That's really well done. Looks great!
    The same thing works in AR2.
    Both the glitter tool, and the tube tool will give that
    effect on the layers above it, sometimes when I don't want it to.
    If you get that "bump" look and don't want it, just export that layer with the glitter or Tube. Make the layer invisible that you just exported, then import that
    layer right back, and what was painted on there, will
    be flat and not affect the layers above it anymore.
