- Opal scatter brushes -
Next up is my opal scatter brushes. I'm super excited about this one! To clarify, these scatter brushes are for adding specks of color to the opals. Pictured in the preview are examples of what you can do!

How to import into SAI2: Copy and paste the .bmp and .ini files into SYSTEMAX Software Development\SAIv2\settings\scatter.


- How to use the opal brushes -

1. The opal itself should be a dull, almost neutral color.

2. For the highlights: Light blue, pink, green, or yellow are ideal. Layer blending mode set to Overlay, or if you want a really intense saturation, Shade&Shine. Experiment with the Hue Jitter for different results.

3. Use the scatter brush to create vibrant bursts of color to contrast with the dull base of the stone. Consider reducing the Flow.
4. Colors should be used sparingly- no more than ~5% of the stone. The dull background is what makes the vibrant colors stand out.

5. Consider multiple layers to create depth.

Here is a very brief and simple demonstration of how to use the scatter brush:

- Disclaimers -

If you wish to modify the way a brush behaves, you will have to edit the .ini file in your SAI2 folder. Otherwise, the brush will revert to the original designated settings the next time you use it.

Free for personal use. Credit is appreciated but not mandatory as long as you do not pass any of my brushes off as your own.
