    Is it possible to achieve blending so smooth that you can't see line or crossing between 2 colors?
    If it is, how?

    Wet in wet painting (also known as wet blending) and glazing are the two best techniques for that.

    However; nothing in life is actually that smooth so why. Look at the painting of people like Kirill Kaneave (most of the Young Miniatures box art for example) or Sang-Eon Lee (Life Miniatures box art). Neither of them paint completely smooth. Both use acrylics. Both have their own styles which often involve stippling to blend lines.

    I'll second Peedee. I haven't quite mastered it yet, but this is the technique I'm practicing. Build up thin layers of color.

    Prost!
