    Create a good (color) blender


    My name is Bart and I'm quite new at ArtRage so first thing I needed to do is to setup some basic tools for me to work with.

    The standard color blenders didn't quite do the job so I've been playing around to get a good color blender that doesn't mess too much with the details, but does blend the colors. Here is how to set it up. (Sorry, the menu's are in dutch)

    thats very soft blender. I added it. I used a larger brush size than 7 though.

    you might also try the preset called in English hard wet blender.
    I like it very much and use that one often.
    I think you will like that one as well.

    you can see here the settings are close to what you use.

    thanks for the settings.

    The "Wet" and "Blur" palette knife types, are a Pro only feature, I'm afraid. You won't be able to use them on the normal studio version.
    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.

    Made both these blenders last night and used them to smooth out areas after using the water color brushes. These work sweet. Thanks to both of you for the presets!
