I’ve always loved the stunning results you can achieve when mixing multiple colors in wet paint and wished there was a way to create this eye-catching effect in Illustrator… now there is! The Artifex Forge is proud to have created this handy and easy to use streaky paint tool kit – the first of its kind!
The pack is the culmination of a process of experimentation and planning that spanned two years; every brush stroke was labored on and carefully scrutinized to ensure that the final effect is life-like and convincing. Here’s what one very happy customer had to say about the pack –
“The Multi-Color Mixed Paint Vector Brushes, is an innovative brush layer system that gives your projects a dynamic, and unique style, with just one click of a button! These brushes are a truly innovative accomplishment. This brush set has quickly earned its place, as an essential necessity, in my design toolbox!”

So, how does it work?
Each multi-color stroke combines three different brushes, which have been packaged using a one-click graphic style. The colors and stroke width can be adjusted in the same way as a normal Illustrator brush.
Don’t worry if you are new to graphic styles, they’re easy to use. I’ve included full instructions and created this handy VIDEO to show you how easy it is to use.
Be sure to read the instructions thoroughly, as the pack works a little differently to normal vector brushes, and If you need any help I’m only an email away.
