3 Metal Rivet Brushes for Photoshop by pixelstains 3 Metal Rivet Brushes for Photoshop by pixelstains

Today’s Photoshop Brushes are for painting metal rivets. They are useful both for graphic design and industrial design purposes, as they provide a larger control over your design compared to a texture photograph.

For brush requests, ideas for future brush sets, or related questions you can email me at brushtip@pixelstains.net

The set contains three different brushes:

  • The first brush paints a shiny aluminum rivet. For using it on different surface than pain white background you will have to add the highlights below the layer the rivet sits on. i.e. create a new layer below, grab the hard round brush and paint under the rivet with the color of the light.
  • The second brush paints a rivet that is often to hold aluminum plates together. It is best used on small or light metal objects. Custom highlights can be added similarly to the first brush.
  • The third one contains a more solid type of rivet. It has a steel texture with harsh highlights. You can use this for robots, armor or any kind of heavy objects. For highlights use the same approach as above.

 

Tips:

Once you painted the highlights for maximum control use the Hue-Saturation Balance (Ctrl+U) in Photoshop. You can adjust and colorize your highlights and align them with the color of the main light source.

For extra realism in close up images, paint a drop shadow below on a multiply layer.

To add details use the default pressure sensitive soft brush, or with noise added.

NOTE:
All my brushes are FREE to use both in commercial and personal art.
