Looking to make a lighting effect with a scatter brush that makes circles of different colours on the same layer (using scatter and colour dynamics). I'd like to add the outer glow effect on this layer, however I can only define a single colour for it, thereby making each scattered circle have the same colour glow that looks off.

Is there a way to make the outer glow effect take the colour of the edge it is projected off? Or another way to a diffuse glow, around each scattered circle, that takes the colour of the circle it emanates from?

    Duplicate the layer and then blur the duplicate maybe? – Scott Mar 3 '19 at 7:02
  • That is a really good idea, hadn't thought of that. Let me try it out! – Fiztban Mar 3 '19 at 10:26
