  1. Hey Mel. This is a great tool! I’m new to photoshop/brush sets so I was wondering if you could help explain how you created that awesome graphic. Which one of your fuzzy brushes did you use? How did you get the colors to be so vibrant? Any kind of tutorial, advice, and/or help would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Hi janice.
    I didnt really do anything special to create the pic above – and i used all the brushes in the set, and overlayed some a few times to build up some depth. Having a black background makes the colours jump out like that.
    Playing around with layer ‘blend options’ creates some pretty good effects too, and is a good thing for a beginner to try.

    Just make a few layers with different brushes/colours on each.

    Then, on your layers window, right click on a layer, and choose ‘Blending Options’. A ‘layer style’ window will appear. If you choose one of the ‘Blend Mode’options from the drop down menu, then click ok, you can get some interesting effects, as the top layer blends into the lower layer.
    Hope this helps! I’ll be writing more tutorials over the coming weeks.

  3. Oh… and one last tip thats quite handy.
    Sometimes the brushes work best if you first use them in white (or black depending on your image/brush) then go over them a second time with the same brush in your choice of colour.
    It helps to give the colours more vibrancy. If you look at the peeling stickers set ( https://melsbrushes.wordpress.com/2008/01/09/peeling-sticker-shapes/ ), that’s how i created that image.

  4. Thanks so much! That was a big help!
