    new Layer = Gel Layer :(

    hey guys, ive been putting up with this for awhile
    and thought maybe there a way around this

    When I create a New Layer, its layer blend is on Default
    but when i start sketching on that layer it switches to gel,
    i then have to switch it back to default and conitnue.

    Why is this happening?

    If I remember correctly, brushes that use the buildup method will do this. Avoid these brushes if this bothers you.

    I wish there was another way to take care of this, because many of the brushes I first use on a layer are these very brushes.

    Jin? Anyone?

    you can manually change the blend mode of the layer. The problem is that build-up brushes utilize the gel blend-mode. If you don't want to have a gel layer, you can't use build-up brushes the way they are meant to be used.

    Hmm... I may need to look for new pencils (for Painter IX).

    I like Rob's pencil. it works for me, and isn't build-up.

    I used to do this on purpose when I was still using Painter classic (because It wouldn't let you choose layer types). The way around this is to start working in the new layer with a different type of brush like Oil before switching to pencil -- should remain a standard/default layer -- or just change it back to the layer type you want.

    Another way to avoid having the Layer change to Composite Method Gel when using brush variants that use Method: Buildup is to change the brush variant to use Method: Cover.

    That, of course, may change the look of your brushstrokes but it's worth a try.


    Or.. just use brush variants with Method: Buildup on the Canvas.
