Text Brush in deviantART muroWe just launched a new tool to Beta Testers that allows you to paint words onto your canvas in deviantART muro!Text Brush in deviantART muro3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

The sample text will update based on the font you select, so you can get a sense of what you'll be painting before you paint it.

Try it out!
To give the new text brush a try, head over to devian
