Hour 8. Digital Painting > Blending Modes

Blending Modes

In the real world, when you place a second brush full of paint over one that's already there, different things happen, depending on the color of the paint you're applying—how opaque it is, whether the first layer is wet or dry, and so on. In Photoshop, you can control all of these factors by applying what's called Blending modes. You'll find them on a pop-up list in the Paintbrush Options window, shown in Figure 8.12. As you can see, there are quite a few different ones. Take a quick look at the Blending modes and how they work.

Figure 8.12. Leave the Options window open while you work to make changes easier.
