Written by Jeff Harrison

  1. Make a new document in Photo-PAINT.
  2. Draw some lines or make some text.
  3. Select it using the mask tools.
  4. Launch the Artistic Media Sprayer tool (I is the shortcut key)
  5. Right-click on mask outline.
  6. choose Brushstroke from Mask
  7. Watch video below for the basic steps… the size of the element you’re spraying is adjustable on the property bar.
