Dry brushing (with v2.1)
Now that we've changed 0% loading on the oil brush to be a totally unloaded brush, there are a couple of things you can do with it to give different blending effects.
If you have some wet oils laid down, you can do a straight blending of the oils by taking the loading of the brush down to 0%. This will allow you to mix what is on the canvas without applying any more colour.
But if you want a more subtle, bristled effect, take the loading to 0%, and click the 'InstaDry' button to the 'on' position. Now the colour is picked up more subtly, and the bump of the underlying oil is unaffected giving a more bristled 'dry brush' look.
Change the amount of thinners for a harder or softer effect.
