Most of the basic information about brushes and blending I give only works on "normal layers". To get the most out of other blending modes while still using on-screen blending mixing takes a few tricks to understand. In this video I'll show how I like to use a combination of blending modes and how they interact with my traditional on-screen-mixing technique.

Note:  Reader Tom H brings up a great point: the videos this week are going under the assumption that you have the "sample all layers" mode activated on your eyedropper tool.  You will get different results if you use the "sample current layer" mode.  Thanks for the reminder, Tom!
