Sorry about that. I figured that I wasn't explaining it very well, but I
wasn't sure how to rephrase it better. Michael was right that I was trying to
apply transparency on the layer directly, by using the delete button on
selected areas.

Thanks that really helps.

If it's anything more than 0 but less than 255, it applies the special
effect. If it is completely black 0,0,0, it becomes invisible/completely
transparent. If it's completely white 255,255,255 than it's opaque and no
special effects are applied.

Thank you Michael, your tips are very useful. That makes editing alpha
channels a lot easier. I can still see the special effects where they aren't
supposed to be, but that's only if I change the settings so that the model
(that uses the texture) is scaled to become larger. So that special effect is
still there, but fainter. 

Maybe there's something I'm not doing to remove this completely, but you've
been a great help.
