    Hi everyone! Welcome to Day 23 of the MOC 2020! I'm excited to share with you some ways to create "PAINT DIPPING" on your page. This technique creates a faux-painted look which can be used on elements, wordart and titles.

    It is reminiscent of the paper scrapping technique of using ink or paint to stamp or brush onto your page to create focal interest, by drawing attention to a scrapbook item by applying color, tonal contrast, texture, etc. It looks like you dipped the product in ink or paint, which can be a clean straight edged dip or a messy drippy application. It's up to you, have fun with it and see what kind of "paint dipping" you can create on your layout.

    Your challenge today is to CREATE PAINT DIPPING on one or more elements, wordart and/or title. You must create your own "paint dipping", not use a product that looks paint dipped.

    You may paint a product using a digital brush or you may overlay a digital paint product overtop to simulate "paint dipping". However which way you achieve this look, I want you to create this look yourself, not just using one product that looks paint dipped. The object of this challenge is for you to create your own paint dipped look.

    Here are some samples of "paint dipping" and there are 7 red arrows to show you the "paint dipping" that was applied to the elements and titles.

    The "paint dipping" can be applied in a solid stamped application or may be repeatedly swiped, dragged or stamped at a lower opacity, so that each time you apply the brush stroke you are building up the color. Select a brush, choose a color and swipe or stamp onto the element, WA or title. The effect will look as if you dipped into paint.

    Before you start "paint dipping", it is recommended that you "lock" your layer so that when you apply your color, it won't bleed onto the layer below it. In photoshop, you may have to "rasterize your layer" before you can "lock" it, by right clicking on the layer and then selecting "rasterize layer" from the menu. You don't have to lock your layer, you may choose to carefully color but I would recommend using a hard edged brush to color along the edge of your product, so that your applied color doesn't spray off the edges. Color slowly and check your coloring to see if you need to "undo" the previous brush stroke. In Photoshop, Control + Z is the undo tool to remove a brush stroke.

    Here's a quick video on how to unlock a layer in Photoshop and Photoshop Elements.



    Here's the layout I created with a paint dipped title. In Photoshop, I rasterized the alpha layers I wanted to add paint to. I then choose a brush (THIS SET), lowered the opacity to about 35%, changed the jitter angle (this is not a necessary step, I like to do this because it rotates the brush each time I stamp with it, as I used an uneven edged brush) and then locked the layers so that I was only stamping color onto the product, not the page (layers) underneath (not a necessary step but advantageous for only coloring onto the chosen layer, not any below it). Because I stamped with a lowered opacity brush, each time I stamped onto the alpha, it built up the color which helps to give it a dripped look.

    This space for any needed clarification:

    @Aerobigirl either style works for dipping, you can have a straight paint edge or built up messy edge, it is a personal choice, both ways are acceptable.

    @littlekiwi you could use any of the default brushes that come with your software. If needed, erase some off to get the look you want. No special brush is needed.

    Angela Toucan has graciously suppled instructions for 2 ways in CRAFT ARTIST

    This method gives a flat look - inked style (note the blending modes won't work using this method)
    1. Before adding shadows to your element(s) make a copy of it. Then add your shadows.
    2. Empty layer above the element layer
    3. Masked layer above that one, put the copy of your element(s) in that layer
    4. In the empty layer put transfers/stamps/paint elements or paint using the CA brushes.
    This method allows adding of bevel and 3D styles etc for a thicker paint look, also allows you to use blending modes and makes moving the element later on easier.
    1.Before adding shadows to your element(s) make a copy of it. Then add your shadows.
    2. on the same layer, put 1 paper/transfer/stamp/brush stroke
    3. paste the copied element
    4. Crop the paper/paint etc to that copied element.
    5. repeat 2-4 for additional stamps/paint strokes etc.
    6. apply bevels or lighting effects if you want to.
    7. Select the element and all it's "paint dip" pieces - group together.

    @rchansen I found this video on youtube. Hope this helps.


    @bumblebeee Thx for the info for Artisan.
    Way 1 - Use the buttons on the TOUCHUP bar. Have your object highlighted, then you can say select paint, and take the 'brush' and brush it across your object. You can adjust the hardness/opacity here, so it can either look like strokes, or be solid....just play around.

    Way 2 - Use the straight cut tool. Cut where you want the two colours to end. Now you have both sections. With one section either recolour, fill with paper or play with the hue/wash options to get a colour where you want it. I then flattened them back together to create one object.
    (Note I would make a copy of your finished project and group it together and hide it on your page, just in case you wanted to tweek anything)

    It doesn't look like the layouts from the Pollys are appearing.

    Question: The top couple of layouts look like the letters and elements have been dipped directly into an opaque can of paint. I can see exactly how deeply each letter was dipped into the paint. The "Ice Skating" one, though, looks more like the title has been "inked" rather than "dipped." Can you please help me understand what makes that one qualify as "dipped?" I'm seeking to understand so that whatever I do I do correctly. Thanks!

    this is more of a general question cause i’m being thrifty - does anyone know of any free brushes that would work for this challenge. I hardly use brushes so don’t want to buy something if I can help it.

    You don't necessarily need to use a brush. You could add paint from a kit to an item or add a new layer that is filled with a color and clip it to your element and move it down so it looks paint dipped. Adding a slight bevel style and/or adjusting the blending mode can help it look more realistic too. Try darken if you want the dark parts of the layer underneath to show or lighten if you want the lighter areas of the layer underneath to show. HTH

    ETA: You could also use the brushes that come with PSE or PSCC. Click on the drop down in the brush picker tool and again by the default brushes. Try the wet media or natural brushes. There should be something there that would work.

    I used paint marks in the template recoloured with papers for the cream and deep blue one and they were added to the title and the torn paper.
