Cloners

This set of brushes has been chosen specifically for cloning and brings together brushes from several other brush categories. All the brushes have been set up ready for cloning with no adjustments needed.

There is no sense of strong identity with this set as they have been presented together for convenience. Some, like the Splattery and Texture Spray cloners, are very rough while the Camel cloners are smooth and smear the original picture. The Water Color and Oil cloners use the Clone Color option and will smear the cloned image. The Soft Cloner is invaluable in bringing back detail to many pictures made with other brushes.

Most brushes in other brush categories can be made to work as cloners simply by clicking the Clone Color option in the Colors palette.

The picture above was painted with the Smeary Bristle Cloner, this is an interesting brush as it gives a very pronounced bristle effect and is quite unusual in that it reacts differently depending on the speed the paint is applied. The faster the brush stroke is made the smearier the result. A very slow stroke will give complete clarity.

I used brush size 30 on a Quick Clone document with opacity 100%. I left the finished picture slightly rough in appearance to give a quick hand painted look.
