Spraying Color—or Candy

Go back to Figure 1 and let’s pick up where we left off. That fluffy purple spray is the Furry Brush, also in the F-X category. Look at the General Controls for this variant to see that the Dab Type is Line Airbrush. The stroke does look like a spray of lines, and it behaves like members of the Airbrush category in a couple of ways. The spray is directional, depending on the tilt and bearing of your Wacom pen. The bottom of my Furry stroke shows that directionality. Also, the brush keeps spraying even when you’re not moving it. That feature is called Continuous Time Deposition, and you can see it enabled in the Spacing Controls.

There is variation in the brightness of color in this spray of lines. A glance at the Color Variability Controls will confirm this, showing the V (value) slider is set to 25%. Figure.6 has another Furry Brush stroke with a couple of tilted bits that look like hedgehogs or porcupines. You can make dramatic changes in any variant by choosing a different Dab Type. I chose Circular Dab for the blue strokes. The value variation shows up clearly here. These circles are not all lined up perfectly along the stroke. That quality is called Jitter, and its control magically appeared in the Property Bar when I changed the Dab Type. With Jitter reduced to the minimum, you get the second blue stroke—circles all stacked up like poker chips.

Figure 6. A little dab’ll do it.


How do you paint with candy corn, mints, and other tasty treats? The amazing Image Hose can spray not only junk food but images of any kind. The content is determined by your choice in the Nozzle Selector, available at the bottom-right corner of the Toolbox. As with all libraries (paper, gradients, patterns, and so on), you can load a different collection and reshuffle the items between libraries with the Mover utility. Now take a look at the variant list for the Image Hose category. Here’s where you can decide whether you want image bits scattered around or marching in a line and whether to use pressure (P) direction (D), randomness (R), or other expression variables to control the size or angle of the images.

Load the custom library, Rhoda Nozzles, and practice using some of these techniques. My Image Hose sampler, shown in Figure 7, uses these nozzles and variants:

  • Seashells: Spray-Size-P

  • Koi: Spray-Size-P Angle D

  • Nuts and bolts: Linear-Size-P Angle-D

  • Candy: Linear-Size-R

  • Sushi: Linear-Size-P

Figure 7. Nail that sushi!


Those sushi slices on the left are too close together. How would you increase the spacing to display the center of each piece better? As for the single slice on the far right—that was done by tapping the tablet once, using a variant that did not specify size changes so that any amount of pressure would produce a full-sized sushi.
