Cannot blend using normal brushes

Hello , 

i just moved to using photoshop and for some reason I’d noticed that the colors I paint using the normal brush tool just paint over one another rather than blend or mix nicely, the only way for me to blend is to use the blender or smudge tool ! 

I’d like to use the normal brush tools and be able to paint and blend the colors on top of one another rather than have them paint over the initial color.

each tool in Ps has a specific behavior and you can't change that... if you want to blend/mix colors, use the Mixer Brush.

I wonder if the op’s

might indicate that they previously worked with Fresco, which offers different painting options.
