Creating a Textured Paint Brush Tip
|INFO: This can be created in most versions of PSP. Supplies needed: Eye Candy 3.1, Quick Simple Tile or 2020, and your imagination!|
|1. Open up a new image 300x300 transparent. Any color will do for now.|
|2. Now choose your colors for the material pallette...complimentary colors such as same colors, different hues, are the best.|
3. Flood fill your image with one of the colors
|4. Go to your paint brush tool, set at round, size 50, Hardness 50, Step 10, Density 100, Blend Normal. Taking your complimentary color draw on your square, any design you want.|
|5. Go to Eye Candy 3 and use this setting. (Whirlpool spacing 30, Smear 15, Twist 70, Streak detail 40) Tip: Save these settings and the following settings if you think you will be using them again, name them whatever strikes your fancy! LOL|
|6. Go to Effects: Art Media: Brush Strokes (Softeness 91, Bristles 235, Width 10, Opacity 51, Length 16, Density 76, Angle 16, Color Black. Hit OK|
|7. Now we need to make it a seamless tile. Go to Quick Simple Tile, accept the defaults, or you may use the program 2020. Blend emboss a couple of times until you have a good texture. Save as a *.jpg.|
|7. Now to make the paint brush texture. Make a duplicate of your file, go to Adjust: Hue and Saturation: Colorize: Settings: Hue and Saturation both set at 0. The color should change to grey.|
|8. With you grey
image highlighted, go to File: Export: Custom Brush. A window pops up
and you can name your brush and also put your name in as creator. See,
told you it was easy! LOL Here's a strip using an example of the
brush in action...
