If you have not set a clone source, Corel Painter uses the current pattern in any operation referring to clone source colors or luminance. This means you can paint with a pattern using a Cloner brush.
If the Source option is not available (grayed out), the selected brush can apply color only. In that case, select a rendered brush, or choose Rendered from the Dab Type pop-up menu.
When painting with a pattern, keep in mind that direction matters. Corel Painter flips the pattern you're painting when you change directions, so apply strokes in the same direction for a uniform effect.
