I'm wondering if there is a way to sculpt some details on top of existing, already sculpted details, and then change the opacity of newly sculpted details? For example skin pores on top of a wrinkles geometry.

It's like working with layers, where you put a layer on top of the layer underneath and then set the opacity individually for each layer. This apporach is used eg. in Mudbox, please take a look at the following tutorial on 8:20 mark:

Does Blender support that approach or is there a clever way to simulate it?

You may be able to use the Sculpt settings in the Multires Motifier in that way. I generally just do all my sculpts on one layer but setting up multiples in this way may do the trick. Hope this helps.

You can Use shapekeys for similar effect but it's VERY heavy on the blender to do sculpting with.

  • $\begingroup$ I don't know but try it yourself on one of your sculpts. brush strokes and updates are infested with lags. $\endgroup$ – Mobin Feb 14 '20 at 15:02

There is Sculpt Layers addon https://blenderartists.org/t/sculpt-layers-addon/1288145 .
