Watercolor blending brush procreate

As you know, I’m a big fan of Procreate. It’s the first app I’ve found that combines the best features of Photoshop and Painter while also enabling artists to work on their iPad. So when I saw this video tutorial on making blending brushes in Procreate, I knew it would be helpful for anyone interested in digital painting.

How To Make A Blending Brush In Procreate

To create a blending brush, you’ll need to open Procreate and tap on the brush icon. From there, tap the plus sign in the top left and select ‘New Brush’. Then choose ‘New From Scratch’. This will open up a blank canvas where you can draw your customized blending brush!

Learn how to make a blending brush in procreate with this step by step illustrated tutorial.

Step 1: Select a brush you like in the brushes panel

Step 2: Go to the brush settings and click on the plus sign

Step 3: Select the brush you want to use as your base, then click on “Blending” option

Step 4: Click on “New Brush” and select the blending brush

So let’s get started!

First, you’ll need to import the brushsoft basic watercolor brush.

Then, import the watercolor blending 900 brush.

Next, download wet brushes and density/spread procreate brushes.

Brushsoft Basic Watercolor

A brushsoft is a watercolor brush that mimics the look of real watercolor paint. The Basic Watercolor brush has three settings: wet, dry and wetter. To use this tool, simply select it from your library and drag it onto your canvas. Then follow these steps to get started:

  • Select one of the three settings (wet, dry or wetter) depending on how much color you wish to apply at once.
  • If you’re using an iPad Pro with Pencil 2nd Gen or newer devices, hold down on the canvas for about two seconds before drawing; this will activate palm rejection so that nothing gets drawn on your hand!
  • You can also choose between four different stroke thicknesses by tapping on either side of the screen while using this tool–this allows artists who prefer thick or thin lines alike to find their perfect match!

Watercolor Blending 900

The Watercolor Blending 900 is a brush that can be used for blending and drawing. It is soft, with a very fine tip, so it makes for an easy-to-use tool. This brush works well with watercolor brushes as well as digital painting tools like Procreate or Photoshop.

Wet Brushes

Wet brushes are great for creating watercolor effects. They can be used to paint over another layer, or even a dry brush. Here are a few ways to use them:

  • Paint over another layer with the wet brush. This will blend the colors together and create an overall texture that looks like watercolor paper. You can also use this technique on its own for a unique look!
  • Paint over an already-painted area with your wet brush, then erase some of it away so there’s still some color left behind (like in this example). This will give you something similar to what happens when you paint thinned-down acrylics on top of each other–you’ll get some blending between colors but still have some visible brushstrokes showing through as well.* Use splatter brushes as part of your process by applying them directly onto your canvas where needed instead of using regular ones because they won’t leave behind any unwanted marks or streaks when used improperly.* Finally: drip effects! These come in handy when trying out different styles such as Baroque art which often employs dripping techniques within their paintings.”

Density and Spread Brushes Procreate

The Density and Spread brushes are great for creating thick, textured strokes. The Density brush allows you to paint with varying amounts of watercolor, while the Spread brush creates a thinner line when used with less pressure or a wider stroke when used with more pressure.

To use these tools:

  • Tap on either one so it appears in your tool selection menu.
  • Tap on any part of your canvas to begin painting!
