    Symmetry question

    I'm trying to make a "tie-dye" look for a scrapbooking background paper, and want to start out by using a 12-point mirrored symmetry. My goal for this kit is a watercolor look to the papers and elements, so I'm trying to use a watercolor brush at 250% size, 55% thinners, color bleed on, paper wet, to get the very blended look of tie-dye. But when I make a stroke with that very smooth watercolor in one section, all the mirrored sections match in shape, but have sections where it seems like 0% thinner. Any suggestions?

    I'm probably going to try oil brushes just to see if I can get the look I want, but it'd be nice if I could figure out how to get around this issue using watercolor.

    Hello SeredroWD and if it's not too late welcome to the AR forums
    I had a brief go earlier today at what I think you are trying to do. But saw no obvious inconsistencies in the look of the paint.
    Perhaps you could post a screenshot of what you are seeing if the problem continues for you.
