Is it possible to do this PS "mixer brush" technique in Affinity Designer/Photo ?

Recommended Posts

In order to draw 3D-like shapes, this guy samples a gradient and paints with this gradient as a brush in PS CC. Is this in any way possible in Aff. Design or Photo?

Hi BeB,


Affinity Photo has a Paint Mixer Brush (you can get the trial from here).  But this is mainly used for mixing paint colours so is different to the PS one.  I also can't see a way to sample the gradient or paint with it.

Here's a brush that might do the trick, but it's not quite the same as your example: 

However, with a little adjusting you might still be able to use it.

It's for AffDesigner.

Choose "Import brush" in brushes panel.

Smoothness depends on how fast you draw, the slower the smoother.

For colours, adjust the gradient or create a new gradient to your liking.
