I dried my 'Digital watercolor'-layers to be able to use the Blend-brushes.
Now I just noticed I can't paint with brighter digital water-colors on those layers.

What to do, what to do?!

Yea, is there away around it? Like if you fill the canvas with a darker color with the paintbucket, then you can't use a brighter watercolor color. Sometimes for no reason, depending which layer I'm on, the same thing will happen. Kind of annoying, and basically why I don't practice with digital watercolor often.

Watercolor is a transparent medium, that's why. You need to use an opaque medium like gouache, acrylic, oils..etc.

It's the way the Digital Wet method works in the General settings, and the layers are set to "Gel." You could change the brush method to something like "drip" to be opaque, but you'd loose the watercolor effect.

Hi,

There are some very nice blending variants in the Digital Watercolor brush category that can be used to blend wet Digital Watercolor. No need to dry Digital Watercolor paint in order to blend it.

The Method: Drip with Subcategory: Drip, Grainy Drip, or Grainy Hard Drip applies an obvious bristle brushstroke (can even look striped) that some may not want when blending color. Method: Drip with Subcategory Hard Drip drags existing color resulting in a kind of "bubbling" effect, and is also not the best for normal, more smooth blending.

Better choices for normal blending of dry Digital Watercolor paint would be variants found in the Blenders brush category or other simple brush variants using Method: Cover with Resat and Bleed and Opacity adjusted to blend.
