Texture brushes are simply patterns to make strokes look as if they are painted on textured canvas. Applying texture brushes to your designs create much depth, dimension, and personality instead of it falling flat. We’ve provided you with a huge spectrum of brushes available below and a couple of photoshop brushes. Scroll down below to gain insight and choose from a variety of texture brushes. You might want to get your designing cap and pen tablets ready.

Using Texture Brushes

While there are available brushes found on Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, one can say that the difference is explicit. The standard brushes give off a smoother quality, which is not bad, but it gets much better with texture brushes. Since applying texture displays gives a realistic appearance and dimension to the image or work. A perfect example is an image that is too smooth or too “Photoshopped”. The viewer’s eyes just pick it up with how unnatural it may look. So, adding texture gives the consistency of a surface. So experiment to see which works best.


Texture brushes can be modified to your preference. Users can freely change the opacity, color, and even its texture. You can also adjust the angles, the hardness of the brush, scattering, so on and so forth.

If you want to add interesting effects to your work perhaps making it in graffiti or street art style, we got you covered. Here are spray brushes you can use to paint your work in freedom to your style.
