What is scumbling painting?

A scumble glaze is a painting technique in which semi-opaque or thin opaque colors are lightly brushed over an underpainted area so that patches of the previous color show through. Technically, its the opposite of glazing.

Scumbling technique

Close attention must be paid to the thickness of the application of a scumble glaze, since excessive application will totally conceal the color underneath. The technique can be used with a palette knife or a paintbrush in painting, or in color pencil techniques, it can be done with light circular motions of the pencil.
