Its difficult to paint in BLACKS and WHITES with the mixer brush. It takes a very long time to blend in. Also i dont think u need all those settings and presets . They dont make a noticeable difference half the time. FLOW, WETNESS is really all you need. Maybe OPACITY too. I know alot of software companies try to mimic real life down to the tool settings, but I dont think that matters. What matters is simplicity, and the final result you get not all the real life style tool settings in my opinion.They just over complicate things. In addition, of all the presets DRY is the only one that makes a noticeable difference from the rest. All the wet presets are nearly the same and there are too many.

Lastly, the color blending could be improved in general, feels very smudge tool. Two colors blending together dont create a very noticeable third color as easily as it should. Look at a lot of other programs blending as an example like Painter, ArtRage, ect. Anyway I really enjoy the mixer tool and thanks for listening.
