Rectangle shape with brush border - how? (Split)

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the forum,

  1. Draw a rectangle
  2. select the node tool
  3. Select a brush
  4. Adjust the width of the stroke and if required remove the fill
  5. If you want to have the brush wrap completely or at least tighter
  6. Convert the rectangle to Curves
  7. Select the node in the corner in the gap and use Break curve from the node tools context menu.
  8. Another option instead of step 7 is to adjust the brushes head and tail offsets.

Continue to use Affinity 😉

Yes, this is Affinity Voodoo lol!

Thank you, but yes, this is Affinity Photo - still the same procedure? 

That function is supported only for Vector brushes, and so is not applicable to Photo (which has only Raster brushes).

(The item is probably present in the UI because you can Open a Designer file in Photo, and without the UI you would not be able to see the current settings, or remove them. But to update them, you need Designer.)

Ok, if using Affinity Photo why not just select a brush and draw a rectangle, or any shaped frame for that matter. I can't quite see what the issue is here since a frame can be drawn with a brush, any brush, you can layer them to get different effects, you can use them to create edge masks for rough edges, or stylised edges.
