Hi ArtByBeckett and Welcome to the Forums,

From my understanding, this isn't possible in Affinity Photo.  You have the basic stroke options on the toolbar along the top, if you select a curve you can then increase the size of the stroke that goes around the curve.  

Affinity Designer would let you apply a brush stroke to a curve, which may be more fitting to what you want to do.  You can get a 10 day trial of Designer from here: https://affinity.serif.com/designer/trial


If i've misunderstood the question, please do correct me and i'll be happy to help further :)

Thank you for your help. Maybe I need Affinity Designer. I am trying to trace over photographs and then transform these into caricatures. In photoshop I could do this with the path tool which would create a path around the drawing. I could then stroke that path as a pen or brush.

Its been some years since I used software that stroked a path. Designer allows bit map brushes to follow vectors. The brushes do need to be carefully made to get a good seamless line. Most available brushes are meant to mimic a gestural stroke, and so have ragged ends, like a paint brush might make.
