Splatter and Watercolour Brushes For Photoshop


Another day — another fresh freebie. Today we are glad to release Splatter and Watercolour Photoshop Brushes, 3 sets of 21 high-quality brushes, with the average size of 2500px or 2200px. These brushes were created for Adobe Photoshop CS, CS2 and CS3 and also work with GIMP 2.4.

The sets are created by Abdullah, the creator of Qbrushes.com1 where you can find further high-quality Photoshop brushes available for free download. This set was designed especially for Smashing Magazine and its readers.

You can freely use it for both your private and commercial projects, including software, online services, templates and themes. The set may not be resold, sublicensed, rented, transferred or otherwise made available for use. Please link to this article if you would like to spread the word.

    Fantastic brushes, I’m a big fan of applying that fine art touch to my work, as an enthusiastic graphics designer I love just collecting these things, you never know when they come in handy. I tried the paint splatter brush today…it’s pretty good…hopefully i’ll get some of my own brushes online shortly. Keep up good work…and thanks again.
