Chalk

The Chalk brushes are particularly good for using with paper textures, many of them use very rough captured dabs, which scrape over the paper surface and emphasize the grain. Some of the dabs are square and the icons in the list of brushes on this page gives an indication of the shape.

In most of these examples below the grain and the opacity settings have been reduced to emphasize the paper grain. The papers chosen vary and it is the differing papers that have changed the appearance of the texture.

The Tapered Artists Chalk is particularly smooth yet it also brings out the texture. The Sharp and Square Chalks give the roughest finish.

The original picture of rust on the side of an old vehicle was very striking already and the clone has given it even more impact.

The Tapered Large Chalk variant was used to paint a very rough texture that reacted well to the strong colors and shapes.

Harsh Texturing paper from the Relief set of paper textures was the paper used, this additional brush library can be loaded from the Extras folder on the Painter program CD.

The brush size was initially 250.0 then using more opacity and less grain the colors and textures were gradually built up.
