Brushes enables you to adjust the layers in your painting. You can add font to a layer, merge and rearrange layers and adjust the transparency level, and you can also import photos as layers. Each painting supports up to 5 layers.

Just in case it takes too long to find the perfect combination with the color picker, you can use the eyedropper tool and pick your color in a blink. You can access the eyedropper tool from the toolbar or by tapping and holding on the painting.
