Use the art nouveau brushes as 3D graphics in Adobe PS
You can use the art nouveau brushes via the Photoshop 3D features (if you have Adobe creative cloud). Apply the PNG etc to a layer or open the art nouveau brush via the place command in Adobe PS. Select the new 3D extrusion from selected layer or new mesh from layer commands to create a 3D graphic.
The 3-D model can be re-modeled using a number of 3D features included in the application. You can also save the '3D' model via the 3D menu export 3D layer command as well as print to a 3D printer (if you have one). You can export the art nouveau 3D models to Collada DAE, Flash FL3, Google Earth format, STL format and Wavefront OBJ (a much more useful format - especially for me as I use the format with Poser). You can then use the 3D results in other graphic applications as well as using the models in 3D printing
Saving the art nouveau brushes
You can also modify them by applying effects, perhaps erasing parts of the image or adding to it and then you can re-save the entire image via the edit menu define command. Once you have added to the palette, you can also save the current set to a new ABR. The ABR will be in the current format (such as Photoshop CC) and this file format may not be readable in earlier versions of Adobe PS or elements.
Art nouveau brushes as layers in Adobe PS and others
Using them as layers by using the place command in Adobe PS, you can combine multiple art nouveau brushes layers as well as duplicate the same to create 1000s of unique graphics.
As layers, they can be used as hi-impact smart objects in Adobe PS and can be transformed (such as scaled, rotated, slanted etc), modified and more and combined with smart filters (which can be removed and / or changed at any point in your creative process).
The PS layers can also be combined with layer styles to add drop shadows and pattern overlays and glow effects and contoured bevels to the art nouveau brushes (you can also turn them into metal effects and faded art nouveau brushes and plastic effects and gels and millions of other styles).
