If you want to reveal part of the underlying layer, add a layer mask to the top layer, paint with Black into the mask in those areas your want to reveal the lower layer.
You can add a layer mask from the bottom of the Layers panel (third from left fifth from right on my copy of CC)
Thanks for the reply. This works if I do not use blending modes.
Are you saying that you want to show the top layer as it originally was before the blend mode was applied? To do that you would need a dupe layer and then mask in the areas you want to "restore."
That was it! Thank you!
