I wanted to darken the sand around the island on the beach near the ocean to create an illusion of a wet sand. I tried to do it using texture paitings, but I don’t know how to do it. I use a poliigon texture for the sand.

Does anyone has any idea achieve this wet sand effect? I would be so extremely helpful for any help!
