How to paint text
Hi I'm working on making a really awesome pic but I'm stuck. The style I use in all of my pics is by making a new layer, changing it to color mode, then making rainbow-ey colors with a really soft brush. Everything was going fine until I threw some text in there. Now when I paint, the text stays the same color! What gives? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

- you have a selection elsewhere
- your layer isn't selected
- Color mode does nothing over pure black or pure white

That was it! The text was white. Thank you so much!
