I'm fairly new with ArtRage and I think it's a really great program, but I haven't found a single blending tool that I like. The Hard Wet Blender with the Palette Knife is nice, but I'm kind of sick of working in watercolour and wet tones; I couldn't get it to look smooth.

Can anyone do a nice simple blending tool that can be used to get smooth, elegant effects and blend colours rather than making it look wet or having that extremely incongruous knife trail?

Or am I just missing something in the program itself?
