Today’s post continues our recent discussion of some different approaches to building wet paint effects. Today’s post takes a look at a paint preset that simulates painting on top of a wet paper towel. This produces a very soft diffuse wet colored paint backing effect.
Yesterday we talked about how to use a special brush type called Geodesic Source Brush to build a spreading wet paint preset designed for manual painting. Today, we’ll focus on a auto-paint effect that simulates applying paint to a wet paper towel. We’ll just be using a normal Source Brush type for today’s wet effect (as configured in the Brush Type control panel shown below). The Source Brush type generates paint nibs directly from the Brush Source control panel settings.
