I know the build-up is part of the effect, but is there any way to get the wet edges effect without a build-up? It's okay if the center color is not transparent, just as long as the outer edge color is darker. The darker outer-edge effect is all that I want.
Both of the bottom 2 effects are 1px 100% opacity. The stroke effect is too jagged. I tried outer glow, which is much smoother, but not varied on edge darkness like wet edges.
