Glaze is the best painting app I’ve seen and used so far, even before the new improved update. How I discovered Glaze was a guy name Joel Aversing on IPA (iPhone Art). I was looking through his feed and saw this photo (CLICK HERE). I looked on IPA to see what apps he used and saw Glaze. I bought the app and made the photo up above called Me and Picasso. Glaze has open doors for me on all kind of editing levels. Let’s get started with the blog post..,
As you can see you start of with three buttons, select photo, save and tool button.
Here’s how the whole app works, you can press the “?” button and this screen will pop up.
You can scroll through look at all the painting textures type. Now with the update Glaze has an in-app purchase to open up more painting textures/styles. I would just pay the $2.99 and open up the whole thing. It’s totally worth it, in my opinion.
The clip boards up above are presets to mixing and layering painting textures on top of each other. You can do up to 4 texture presets.
This is really *important* to know when it comes to saving and operating Glaze. If you are going to use this app, make sure you turn off all your app running the background on your iPhone. The reason is if you other apps running, your photos will only save at low resolution. Now how to check and see if your app are running in the background is double click you home button. The screen will go up slightly and you will see apps running, hold your finger on the app until it jiggles and you see an “X” button on the top left hand corner. “X” out off all the apps to kill them because they are open and still running.
If you want to change and do a different photo this is you other option.
These are my Glaze photo demo.
I like to use art app to make background layers.
Now I use the photo on top and layered it onto another photo using DXP and blending with Difference. Then I used Glaze again to give it more a painterly effect.
Here are 2 more photos I’ve played with using Glaze and other apps. I’m still playing with the app coming up with ways to layer it in with other photos. This app will always be a work in progress with me…that’s a good thing !!! It just means I will not get bored of this app because I love the textures and the endless possibilities of editing. Every time I use this app it gives me the most amazing looks and styles. It’s one amazing painting apps I’ve seen so far…nothing comes close to it.
I was trying to find a new way of editing with Glaze and my friend Tiffany White gave me a photo of her. I played with it and came up with this edit, still perfecting it today.
