This group of brushes are not very easy to use for cloning.
The first three examples can be used in the Cloning Method but they have a rather unique style. When you make a brush stroke, the brush picks up the color first clicked on and continues painting with that color and ignores the source image. Some variants gradually fade out while others continue with the same color.
The rest of the examples cannot be used for cloning at all, or at least, none that I have found. They can, however, be used to work directly upon a picture, so perhaps it might be best to think of them as a sort of blender.
Stone horse and dog.
This picture was created using the Grainy Colored Pencils variant. The outlines of the statues were traced with a narrow brush at a low opacity then a larger brush size filled in the shapes. A medium brush integrated the two brush sizes.
To finish the picture the original image was selected and copied, then pasted into the clone document on top of the clone layer.
The Layer Composite Method of the top layer was changed to Luminosity and the opacity to 32%. More detail on using layers can be found in Chapter 7.
