Brush with black border outline.

Recommended Posts

Using Affinity Photo on a Mac.

I realize you can paint a white stroke then use FX outline to outline the paint stroke. but what I am looking for is an outline brush like the "Line Brush" in Fire Alpaca.

as you paint,  the brush has a chosen color inside color and a chosen color as an out line. EX: red brush with Black outline.

Is there a way to make this kind of brush? Or find one somewhere? I have searched to no avail. This is one reason I like Fire Alpaca. paint software. but lacks so many things I use in Affinity Photo.

Thank you for reading and I appreciate any helpful suggestions.

If you have Fire Alpaca can you give us some examples of the brush stroke(s) you are wanting?

@carl123 I think this is the brush style that is wanted.

it’s doable in Affinity Designer.

This brush can be done in Affinity Designer because Affinity Designers brushes can be configured to have head and tail offsets, so creating this brush in Affinity Designer just requires a pill shaped PNG.

In Affinity Photo the brushes can’t be configured to have head and tail offsets.

OK that's a shame.. Thanks. I appreciate your help.

I haven’t given up yet 😉 trying a few idea’s if I succeed I’ll post the brush here.

I surrender, it’s not possible in Affinity Photo
