I never get enough blending articles. Here Jens at Brusthralls goes through the technique. I used to be completely intimidated by blending. My first attempts were terrible, but not that I've tried it several time and tried several different techniques I've come across a technique that works for me, and actually works. Not that I get good results each time, but at least I've got my starting point for more practice. And lots more practice is needed to get results like the above.
