A closer look (and some actual uses!) for the often ignored Photoshop Dissolve Blend Mode.

First I use the dissolve blend mode to see if I can additively reconstruct the RGB color separations of an image.

Then I use the dissolve blend mode to more accurately control the percentages of an array of noise, so that I might assemble a Truchet tile-based random 'maze' pattern.

I found I was unable to use this process to simulate subtractive CMY color mixing.
