stained glass cow brushes effect in Photoshop

 

They can be extended either by using the palette to add scatter etc or you can take a stroke and use it as a source for other strokes such as a stroke with a blur or painted glass effect added, the farmyard animal then becomes a stained glass effect though it is unlikely that the animal will appear in any church window at any time.The stroke was created using a standard dab and applying it (in black) and then a stained glass effect in PS is applied and the stroke is then re-defined via the edit menu. Of course, many other effects can be added to them and many such as black and white effects can be used to create stamps or cutouts, all very useful if the original size is fairly small (400 x 400 etc)

Use the filter menu offset command to create more interesting tiles. You can also add color into the mix (unlike the sources for the ABRs). You can then use the edit menu define command to load them into the palette and then they can be used with the new fill content, overlay feature of styles etc. You can also just save them as a PNG file and then add them to the patterns folder of PSP and you can use them in Corel PSP (as well as textures).
