You can use the color channels to create all kinds of super interesting color effects with the Photoshop brushes.


You can also combine the strokes with effects in each of the red, green etc as well. In some cases you cannot add an effect (not all of them work in red and green etc but require to be used in RGB). You can also use the same approach with the CMYK as well as LAB image modes etc as well as 16bit and 32bit


By using the strokes in the red and then the green etc you can create all kinds of unusual color effects even with a single stroke by adding the artworks to different parts of the image in the red and the green etc (as well as using diffferent sizes etc)

Say you are using RGB then you can go to the split command and then you will see a new red file as well as a green file and a blue but at first they are in grayscale (that is the default) but then you can change that quickly back to RGB and use the strokes with the red file in RGB. You can also then combine the strokes with effects and adjustments etc


To return them back to a merged RGB, go to the panel and then right side menu and select the merge and then merge all the files back into a RGB file. You can then continue to add strokes as before.
