Join Kevin Stohlmeyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Mixer Brush, part of Using Wacom Tablets with Photoshop.
- [Instructor] Now I wanna focus on the options…for the mixerbrush itself.…The mixerbrush tool is a great way to create…a painterly effect on top of a portrait.…We'll use our portrait2.psd file for this demo,…and select layer one.…Before we get started,…I wanna make sure that I'm on the mixerbrush tool,…and that I have my two options selected…for load my brush with every brush stroke,…and then I'm sampling all layers.…An additional feature that will help…is to add pen pressure sensitivity for my size.…And it's the last option here.…
I'm gonna choose a brush preset of smooth and round bristle,…and adjust my size using my right bracket key…and left bracket key to increase or decrease the size…to fit my space a little better.…The setting I'm gonna use for this is wet heavy mix.…Wet mixes are going to blend…a lot more of the portrait below,…whereas a dry mix is going to add…a lot more of my foreground color.…To start, I'm gonna hold down the option key…to select my skin color, and then just start to paint.…
And you'll see very quickly,…
