    Your word is my command, Oh great Enchanter!

    Very useful discovery! Loads of potential. If you blend it for long enough it disappears completely.

    Then try it on a wet canvas!

    Enchanter you've made a lot of people happy!

    Especially Andy, who can now incorporate whatever's happening here into the new blender!

    i really really did think everyone was using the palette knife for blending, because thats what ive been doing with it for nearly two months!.......actually i thought that was the actual purpose of the tool ops:

    ive only used brushes when painting (or trying to ) , non digital media, and i know sometimes a palette knife is used for mixing and applying paint, though i never tried it.

    im glad that everyone can use this technique now,

    hope to see more stunning pictures

    hey, Aged P , that last piece looks like a modern piece of art, that you find in a well known Gallery :lol:

    Hi Enchanter,

    I'm not sure that I would have ever tried the Palette knife at 0% pressure, that was the clever bit.

    I used real palette knives a lot in conventional painting, the option of no pressure at all wasn't very effective! Now it comes close to a piece of cloth or a finger tip.

    It does do beautiful skin tone blending, I'll practice using it for a while before trying anything serious.

    Auroras and rain are now also much easier, although a touch of dry brush still helps with rain.



    The added pic is 6 lines of tan onto wet black, 4 passes with the 0% Palette knife and two touches with the eraser.
