don't say things like that! If I got you, it's by 10 minutes, that all. Plus we probably aren't even going to the same place. Play with liquify, you will like it! Just make a big circle and drag things around.

It's true. But I know you have gotten very serious about a specific kind of work you want to do, while I'm just dibbling and dabbling here and there. There is a difference in our approaches.

Make a big circle? I didn't know that. I've just been trying to push stuff about.

by that I mean just make the brush size (a circle) large. Changing the size of the thing is a key to success with the the process.

Hey Min, I just watched this tutorial. I will watch it again, and then I will watch it again. Watching this has been a real eye-opening experience for me. You need to watch this also, it will cost you an hour, but you will see an unbelievable and easy to follow workflow. I wish I had seen this when I was dealing (or trying to deal) with all the smudging in my Conan piece. Anyway, this is a treasure!!!!!

They are puddles of residue from the trees, various minerals and oils that pool together and form little rainbow colored shapes on the top of the water. Because it was cold this morning, there was a rim of frost on the edge that gave it a defined look. All suggestions appreciated.
I've never seen oil pool like that, oil spills but the separation of color is amazing, my assumption is the temperature and so neat! S-
