    How to blend effectively without opacity set to pressure?

    Hi guys!

    I've been focusing my practice on blending lately. I've always used the brush set to pressure on both FLOW and OPACITY. However I always hated that opacity difference as I do my strokes. (Im a beginner btw). So I ended up turning off pressure for opacity, leaving it just for flow.

    Now the issue is I cant blend like I used to! What should I do to make a nice blending workflow without having to activate pressure for opacity every single time?

    I could think of a couple things, but I'd like your opinion on this one:

    - Change opacity with 0-9 buttons only when I want to blend (best option apparently)
    - Make a brush just for blending (which doesnt seem so efficient)
    - Learn how to work properly with opacity set to pressure (Not sure if that's even the matter)

    Thank you guys!

    How about mixing your inbetween colours or, alternatively, set opacity to 50% and repeatedly painting an inbetween colour and sampling the result?

    >> make a brush, that's the best choice ( a tool preset )
