Question

Have read so much about the smudge here. I have used the smudge tool to hide some bad edges - what are the numbers to use it to smudge artwork?

I use the smudge tool now more since I have been visiting this site. There are all kinds of art brushes in the smudge brush presets. I used the oil brushes to smudge the painting and the texture. I don't use very much pressure, but you can adjust it to get the effect that you want.

2. Impressionist - Damp translucent watercolor, some funny thing call djrOil24 that I picked up along the way, , and faithful chalk. I faded each setting until I liked the look, before going on to the next one.

3. Invert selection. VP oils, tweaked and then faded. Deselect.

4. A little smudge here and there where the edges were too sharp. A little tweaking with Curves, and Secective Color.

5. Trimoon's canvas texture.

That's it. Thanks for your impressionist settings, I use them frequently.
Thanks, P, for the details. They rendered a wonderful result on this one.

Glad you find the Impressionist settings useful. It's a blast to come up with new ones.

I was trying for a watercolor look. I don't think I quite achieved it but I had fun trying. I used Painter, and then PSCS, and photoframe for a watercolor edge.
