This array of 100 high resolution, real spray paint brushes for Adobe Photoshop, Fresco, Procreate & GIMP was crafted from a combination of digital renderings & sample specimens from real caps. We selected an optimal array of both obscure caps like the classic "Big Wally" fat cap and indespensible staples like New York Fats & Pantoms, German Outlines & more & used real spray paint specimens to develop these advanced digital brushes.
We built this set with a focus on realism & wide usability. The brushes have nearly 3x the resolution of most other brushes & can be used up to a 2000px width. We’ve provided five categories of caps: Fatcaps, Outline Caps, Calligraphy Caps, Standard Caps & Spatter & strived to accurately emulate a number of real caps like NY Fats, NY Outlines (Phantoms), German Fatcaps, Rusto Fatcaps, German Outlines, Blue Dots, Krylon Standards, Rusto Standards & more. In developing this set we dug into our private collection of rare caps from discontinued household products like “Spray N Wash”, various oven cleaners, shoe polishes and other classic sources that writers turnrd to before caps were available for purchase. We even used precious, mint condition “Big Wally” fatcaps that date back to the early 1970s and are known as the first widely used fatcaps discovered by graffiti art pioneers. This first release of our Real Spray Paint Brush Set may already be the largest, most comprehensive, highest resolution & most realistic set available but this is just the beginning.
Each brush is provided in four progressive weights. The weights are not merely levels of opacity but rather each weight is built on a unique brush tip in combination with a number of settings which work together to emulate varying levels of pressure & speed & therefore the density of the paint. All four weights are built to apply a more opaque & solid layer of color at the thinner end of the stroke to accurately mimic the behavior of real spray paint.
All standard brush settings in Photoshop & Procreate remain adjustable. We’ve chosen what we believe to be the most effective default settings but you may wish to customize some behaviors. For example, most of our brushes have the “Build Up” setting deactivated by default to make the brushes easier to use but you may wish to turn it on for even more realistic performance. For further ease of use, we’ve also left the speed settings up to you. The brushes will perform beautifully on both width & opacity with no regard for the speed of your strokes but you can activate the speed settings to give you even more control.
These highly detailed, high-resolution brushes can be used up to 2000px without any loss of sharpness.With the exception of the spatter brushes that have a larger default size, all brushes start off with a default diameter of 180px but the size remains completely adjustable like any other Photoshop or Procreate brush.
The brush arrays are separated into five separate .abr or .brushset files according to the type real-world cap they emulate: Fat Caps, Outline Caps, Standard Caps, Calligraphy Caps & Spatter.
