  1. Hi there, I’m trying to use the mixer brush in a different layer than my original photo and so far it’s not working. I’d like to know if I’d be able to this or not. I want the painting version of my photograph to be in a different layer. So what I do is: I duplicate the original photo layer and in between the 2 layers I create a new pixel layer. I then decrease the fill of the top layer of my original photo to 1%. Then I merge it down with the pixel layer I created. The other original layer of my photo is moved up and opacity decreased, so I can see what I’m painting. I set the primary colour to none, so the mixer brush is clean all the time in order to use the colours of my original photo. I then check the brush to be wet. When I paint to this merged down layer (1% fill original photo + new pixel layer) nothing happens. There are pixels in the layer and the brush is not getting them. Can anyone give an insight on this? Thanking in advance!
  2. Hi Everyone, Since I switched to AP 1.8.1 (Mac Sierra), the paint mixer brush doesn't work anymore. If I use load or auto-load, it just paints fully (no mix or transition) with the primary color with even some pixels on the fringe of the stroke. If I clean the brush, then absolutely nothing happen. I tried it on several files (with layers or flat), I did reset the settings to default but nothing changed. It used to work and I like that tool. It's annoying because I'm currently experimenting AP for digital painting and it stopped me in my momentum. I could use the Smudge brush tool but it also has a few bugs (square pixels appear). Does anyone else experienced the same trouble ?
  3. I am looking for an option to auto-clean the mixer brush in the ios app. I have found that the small "water glass" icon in the bottom right of the brush menu will clean it once, but is there a way to toggle this option permanently on and off? Thank you so much for all your hard work on this app Serif. It is quickly becoming one of my favorite painting tools.
  4. Is there a "Mixer Brush" equivalent in Affinity Photo? I how discovered that this Photoshop tool, the Mixer Brush, was very useful in digital painting. Is there a similar one in Affinity Photo...if not, do they plan to add something like it?
