Hello everyone I have a query for you 

I'm experimenting on a project in which i would need to add text on a blindfold and make it look as if it's painted on/on the blindfold .

I found that "negation" blend mode gives the best results in terms of visible texture of the blindfold , however because of the blend mode and the light unnatural black spots appear .

How would you guys suggest getting rid of the black spots

 

(The issue is at the R letter where there is quite a lot of distortion of colors)

Maybe darken the highlight behind the 'R' or clone another area to that spot that isn't so bright?

You would be much better off using the Displace filter, which is designed to allow the background texture to show through. It would look far more realistic.

Well I actually have used it but I feel like the transparency given by the Negation makes it look better , letting the pattern of the scarf trough while the white remains concentrated .

In Photoshop people use Light Burn as a blend mode , but in Affinity there is no such option the most similar is Color Burn which makes the text completely invisible for me
