All impasto variants in this brush library are prefixed with the letter ‘i’.

Generally speaking, I’m not in favour of including the same variant in several different sizes within my brush libraries. In this case however, the Bristle settings have also been optimised to match brush size with hair spacing.

Adjust the Min Spacing value in the Brush Controls> Spacing section through the range 0.1 to 3.5 in order to control impasto depth where applicable.

The GRN Thin Acrylic and i Acrylic variants require a fairly high paper contrast (adjustable in the Papers palette), in order to leave the troughs in the paper texture unfilled with pigment.

The download comprises of the following;

  • a complete zipped brush library for Painter 7 and upwards.

There are no restrictions on use, other than the resources are not to be offered for sale or redistributed without my prior consent. The zipped file is also compatible with the current (0.6.1012) version of the Studio|chris Brush Manager (see link in Painter Utilities section), which will automatically install them as a brush category. All variants are SaveRestoreDamping|SaveRestoreMouseParams compliant.

  1. Thanks for the comments. I have a constant struggle with making methods sound too technical, when they are quite simple to perform in practice.
