Applying Art Strokes effects

CorelDRAW provides 14 Art Strokes effects that give images an organic, hand-painted look. You can use these effects to turn your images into pastel drawings, sponge paintings, watercolors, or to create textured backgrounds for your artwork. The Art Strokes effects are:

• Scraperboard — scatters and layers pixels in long strands to create the impression of an image scratched in paint
