2 Work­ing with the Acrylic tool

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

You’ll find the same prop­er­ties for the Acrylic brush as for Wa­ter­color, but of course it works in a dif­fer­ent way. Colour spread is re­duced, and it oc­curs more slowly on the can­vas. If you in­crease the Load­ing and Pres­sure val­ues you’ll have a thicker brush with a lot of mass, pro­duc­ing an im­pasto ef­fect, which to­tally cov­ers the can­vas tex­ture. For bet­ter colour blend­ing, es­pe­cially with a high Load­ing set­ting (close to 100), switch to Dirty mode.

Brush strokes with a high Load­ing value to­tally cover the can­vas tex­ture. If you want to bring back some of the can­vas’ tex­ture, start paint­ing on a new layer. You can change brush tex­tures to achieve dif­fer­ent im­pasto ef­fects.
