    Very cool effect! What you're seeing here is the result of the palette knife smoothing down the texture of the glitter which makes the surface more even and therefore more polished looking. I really like this, those flowers look great!

    Dear DaveRage, Thank You for the explanation of what happened, it was almost as though the pallete knife was grazing over the 'leaded' area without touching the colors, then the colors sort of puddled and became de or dimentional?, very very cool!!!! Thanks again!!!

    That's fantastic! It looks like what is called cloisonné
    noun
    1. enamelwork in which colored areas are separated by thin metal bands fixed edgewise to the ground.

    Can you tell me what setting you have for your pallet knife?
    Thanks, Beth

    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.
