    Minimizing Impasto Effects

    Hi everyone,

    I'm using the oil brush with the thinners set to 97%, loading to 32%, and pressure at 90%. I'm using a Wacom Intuos 3. I would like to paint a stroke that has some impasto effect, but barely noticeable. I'm able to reduce the amount of the impasto effect; however, doing so also washes out the color to almost transparent. Is there a way to have my cake and eat it too? Can I have negligible amounts of impasto and strong color at the same time? If so, how?

    Thank you for your help.

    By the way, I really love how you guys (AmbientDesign) have boiled everything down to the basic tools that people want to use. The interface is clean and elegant. It's really a beautiful piece of software.

    Set your thinners close to 50%
    That thins the paint so it doesn't have the impasto effect, but not so thin that it starts becoming transparent.
