Pixel Blend, a painting app that simulates the process of Time Zero Polaroid SX70 emulsion "painting" is one of my favorite apps. Now, Michael Valdez has come out with its easier to use cousin: Smoosh. (Smooshing is what we SX70 enthusiasts used to say we were doing when we moved the emulsion on the Polaroid prints.) I tried it and I love it! It's intuitive and user-friendly - even if you've never heard of SX70 or Time Zero or heaven forbid, Polaroid.
To test it out, I pulled up a "nothing" shot of a rose that I took intending to paint it one day.
I painted (smooshed) it. Even took out the bug on one
petal just by smooshing. Cool. It's still just an ok shot, but the paint
strokes are wonderful.
