Image Hose Trick - Blending images with the additional color

Here is a little trick that you can use with the image hoses in Painter.

 

Using the Grain brush control, you can make your image hose "content" blend with the "Additional Color" (sometimes called "secondary color").

 

 

Here is the image hose with Grain set to 100%.

 

If you change the image hose to 50% for example, and set your additional color to orange, here is what you should get:

 

 

Ok, now what?

 

If you set your Grain expression to be Random, you will get randomly blended image hose content, with your additional color.

 

Here is an example of what it could look like:

 

Happy painting... or image spraying!
