In Photoshop there are several ways to simulate a painted canvas look in your designs.  All methods have their pros and cons but neither are very great at simulating the brush strokes created when an actual paint brush hits the canvas. The best method involves reproducing a canvas and brush texture and applying it to a Photoshop brush.  So last week I designed a set of brushes that works very well at simulating this effect and published it on one of my favorite sites; Smashing Magazine.


The Painted Canvas Brush Set contains 55 high resolution Photoshop Brushes that are perfect for simulating a painted canvas look.  Download them and give them a try.
