Hello Crew,

Kind of a beginner questions here.

 

I have created 2 donuts in Designer but I want them to appear as brush strokes.  Is there a way to apply a brush to the donut after the fact?  I am hoping to cycle through the brushes to choose the one that suits the design best.

Thank you!Donuts.png.d384215b8bc8f270deb1825419dc89f4.png

It would help to have your .afdesign file to examine and experiment with.

Lacking that, I will suggest that you look at the Stroke panel, where you can set this option in Designer (Designer Persona):

Take a look at this. I changed the black donut to a hole radius of 100% size and slapped a stroke on it. I then used the Pressure panel to change the thickness of the stroke.

The Red donut gets the same 100% but I used a brush on the stroke.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

If you want to do this with a brush from the Brushes panel, as well as setting a pressure curve, try clicking on "Properties" on the Strokes panel or popup in the context toolbar & setting a large value for Size Variance.
