Several artists whose work I’ve admired have listed the app Mextures in their mix list. I decided to give it a try today:
Mextures is pretty useful. It allows you to stack and mix different textures such as grunge and light leaks each on a separate layer and to rearrange those layers. It also allows you to save a recipe of stacked textures so that you can apply it over and over on a body of work.
Tiny airplanes seem quaint in these days of frequent intercontinental travel. A sherbert overlay felt just right. But this is not just one texture layer but 5 different texture layers finished off with some buffing and polishing in Snapseed.
I love the layered painterly feel that this app enables me to make. I’ll definitely use it again.
