ok. i'm trying some color stuff. i'm in painter 6. i have a base layer for some hair set to multiply. now i'm trying to add some highlights on a layer on top of the base one. i am using the round water brush on the highlight layer. the problem i am having is that when i try to lay down the round water brush it starts off white and then the color comes as i progress with the stroke. i have run into this before but am wondering if there is a way to change the settings so i don't have that initial white appear. thnaks. hope this makes sense.
I sort of remember this problem...did you check the Corel site to see if there is still a Painter 6 update you could download? I vaguely remember a fix for this, but I may be off on my versions...since I moved to ver.7 some time ago -- a major improvement.
If you can possibly do it, move up to ver. 7; a lot of these kinds of issues have been solved.
