    3) in the layers panel, set layer mode to "multiply" and "bump blend mode" to "replace"

    4) merge the underlying thick layers if you haven't done it already, and merge the white (which is invisible due to way "multiply" layer mode works) layer down last. you can play with multiply layer's opacity too if you need to trim just a bit of the paint depth.
    hi, nekomata
    good explanation, thnks

    Though multiply on white should not change a color seems it does.
    Probably it's hard to notice difference here but it's present. On the right side the image with white layer on top and the resulting image is slightly lighter.

    this is what clearing impasto essentially does - thick media in artrage relies on it to create realistic paint strokes, but if you remove impasto data entirely, it will lighten the paint.

    I see a quite visible shift, upping the pigment brightness, when painting with oil/oil-based mediums or depth-enabled custom brush and doing the multiply layer trick over it, but there's no value change with watercolor, oil pastel and custom brush paint strokes that don't have depth added.

    you can use "adjust layer colors" filter under "edit" menu to tweak the brightness and contrast if you prefer a slightly darker look.
