106 Delicious Water Color Illustrator Brushes

Yes, I did say Illustrator brushes. This set of brushes is a real treat! 106 awesome and completely vector water color Illustrator brushes. You guys have no idea how excited I’ve been over the last couple of weeks waiting to release this set of brushes to you guys for free.

I had a lot of fun putting this set of brushes together for you guys and I was blown away as to how well they turned out.  This set is perfect for creating really great multi-colored brush strokes and could easily be used to create an artsy, hand-painted design or a children’s illustration.

To use these brushes you will first need to download the brush file and save it to your hard drive.  Once downloaded, open up your brush palette and in the fly out menu select Open Brush Library > Other Library > and locate the file on your hard drive.  To use these brushes you must be using Illustrator CS and above.  Once you have the brush file open, you can start applying these brushes to your lines and shapes.

    I’ve tried downloading the first brush set 3 times and each time file is blank in illustrator cs. I’m hoping the 2nd brush set has somethng in it. Thanks anyway.

  • @ J
    I tried emailing you but your address came back to me. The file isn’t blank. Next time you attempt to open the file, check the brushes palette. You will see all the brushes listed there. Also, the third paragraph on this page includes instructions on how to import the brushes. Try again and enjoy!
