Join Kevin Stohlmeyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Mixer brush, part of Using Wacom Tablets with Photoshop.
- So here we are back inside of our portrait.psd file.…I still have my layer that I created…in the previous movie up,…and I'm going to switch over to a different tool.…This tool is called the Mixer Brush Tool.…The Mixer Brush Tool is a great way…to create a painterly effect…on top of a portrait.…So I'm gonna zoom in here just a little bit.…The one thing that I wanna make sure…that I have active is over on the far right…of my control panel I have checked…Sample All Layers to pick up the image…from below and the background layer.…I also have my pen pressure set for my pen.…
Now taking my Wacom Pen,…I can go in with any brush and it will start…to pull up the image and blend it in.…But this really ties in well with my natural tipped…brushes that we saw in the previous movie.…So if I right click, I'm gonna choose…my natural tipped brush again,…and I'm gonna start to paint.…You'll notice that this really starts to blend in…between the original image and the portrait background.…Use the upper click to check the eye dropper tool…
