I am trying chalk pastel. I am having trouble with the palette knifes. I find they smear the work. What would you suggest? Thanks. I am using coarse paper.

What software do you use again?

I use ArtRage 4.5. I also posted on the ArtRage forum and this was the answer.

"If you just want to blend colour, but not the texture/media itself, reduce the pressure in the settings for the palette knife. 0% pressure will only blend colours."
