None of these Oil brushes use the paper texture but nearly all have a lovely brush texture. The majority of them use the Clone Color option with just a few able to switch to the Cloning Method.

These brushes are really useful for creating a painterly look, they can be used initially as large brushes to create a textured background and then, by reducing the brush size, more detail can be brought into the clone picture.

The Glazing Round brush has a fine gentle texture which is unusual in this category.

Flat Oils

Medium Bristle Oils

Glazing Round

□ Variable Round

Thick Wet Oils

This charming scene of a child watching the pigeons bathing in the fountain was photographed in Venice and I loved the delight that showed in her face and in the way her hands were clasped together.

The Thick Wet Oils brush was used to block in the main areas, then the Thick Wet Camel to bring in more detail and texture.

It was quite difficult to get good detail into the face and hands of the child, so when the clone was finished the original was pasted back into the clone copy.

A layer mask (see Chapter 7 on how to apply and use Layer masks) hid most of the original picture and just the face and hands were revealed. This gave the clarity and definition that the picture needed.
