  1. Hi, I am using both AP desktop and iPad versions and IMO both lack any workable paint blending tool. The smudge comes close to being a functional tool but as you can see in the inserted image, after using a default simple round soft brush to apply two color strips and attempting to get a nice blend, there appears an edge, Ie wet edge, which is not what I want. ( The smudge tool has all the default settings running with wet edges not set) see first insert. The paint mix brush is frustrating to use and is really a joke! I first saw this paint mixer brush technology in Photoshop CS6. The paint mixer brush was the long awaited solution from Adobe to satisfy the decade long request from all the digital painters who wanted a blending brush/tool that actually worked. Well , IMO this offering from Adobe failed miserably. So complicated to use and did not offer a simple blending solution. I really don't know of anyone who actually uses the paint mixer brush. I was sad to see that Affinity Photo borrowed the Paint mixer idea from Adobe and IMO , this paint mixer brush has to be tweaked to the N th degree for little results... Not worth the effort... it is a joke to use. Now, the app Procreate offers a simple yet very effective and fun to use smudge tool that does exactly what one would expect a blending brush would do... ie... simply blend colors! Conclusion: Affinity photo please give us a useful blending tool.,, perhaps rewriting the present smudge tool to function more effectively... like the Procreate smudge tool. Thanks
