    Question importing layers

    I am trying to start a new painting from a flattened PSD that I have imported. The knife tool blends this layer as I would expect, but the oil brush tool acts as if it is on a fresh empty layer, the colors not blending with what is already there. Is there a way to make the layer "wet" or something so that the oil brushes will react better with it?

    Hi Werezoo,

    There is a way, but it's a workaround. I've created a tutorial explaining how increase and decrease the wetness (or amount of) paint, which can you watch here:

    Thumbs up

    Thanks Someonesane, Nice workaround! I bend Photoshop to my will all day, but am still learning the tasty tricks of art rage. Hopefully one day I'll get to share some of the results. Thanks again!
