Can you add 'layer masks' in GIMP? That's how I'd do it with Photoshop.
Do you mean something like this?
I reversed the top and bottom layers, and added a layer mask to the top layer.
Then I brushed away the hood.
If you PM me your email add, I will send you the gimp xcf file.
The way I would do it (in Photoshop, I know nothing about Gimp) would be to put the hood layer above the engine layer. Then add a layer mask (white/clear) to the hood layer. Then I would use the brush tool on the layer mask and 'paint the mask on' with a soft edged brush. I would paint the areas that I wanted to mask on the hood layer...the areas that I want the engine to show through...with black. If I wanted to cover an area back up, I'd switch to white and keep painting.
Here are a couple I made with my Blazer a few years ago
I think your way is easier...
Thanks, that's exactly what I was trying to do.
