Life style : The key thing is that the layer style is "live" so if you decide that the current art is not great, you can always go back into the layer style via the layer menu and then change the altitude, size, depth, angle etc and the changes will then be reflected in the currently applied stroke to that layer.

style appliedMultiple layers and varying style settings : You can create multiple layers when you create a new document. You can also add new layers via the layer menu - and you can add different bevels (via the layer styles) to each layer and then paint with different strokes and different depths etc. You can add 100s of layers and add styles to each stroke layer and also then merge and flatten the layers as well as using blending modes to darken or lighten the effect. You can also add to the design by using effects such as oil paint and blurs etc


Example : Layer menu and then New paint layer and New Paint layer etc (to generate more layers). Or click the + at the bottom of the layers panel and add new paint layer. Go to the layer menu and layer styles for each. Paint using the freehand tool
