Ink Wash is an exciting new collection of 10 hand made ink wash brushes for Procreate on iPad. These are dual-purpose brushes, they can be used to either paint your own washes, or 'stamp' them with a press for the natural shape!
Based on original high-res scans, the source paintings were made with authentic artist-quality ink on 100% cotton, 300 LB hot press Arches watercolor paper. These brushes are rendered at the absolute highest quality possible in the Procreate brush engine.
Included are 10 brushes:
- Light Wash - This is a soft general wash, great for adding tone and shading to define forms, capable of accumulating from very light to very dark.
- Water Lines - Captures the ink being pulled from one wash to another, great for connecting shapes and adding a natural feel.
- Soft Shader - Another general wash, but even softer and less textural.
- Dark Granulate - A darker brush, which captures the texture of ink naturally granulating and creating the 'tendrils' look.
- Hard Edge - This brush has a medium hard edge on one side, and a very hard edge on the other.
- Hard Bleed - this brush has a solid, well-defined shape in the center, which bleeds out to gray tones. One of my favorites to paint solids, and also stamp down for instant ink wash look!
- Hard Soft Edge - This brush has a hard edge on one side, and a very soft faded edge on the other. Paints really well!
- Bloom Wash 1 - This brush is mostly soft all around. The paper was pre-wet, and ink was dropped into the center and allowed to bloom out into a beautiful shape.
- Bloom Wash 2 - Another variation of the bloom wash for variety.
- Solid Wash - Similar to the Hard Bleed brush, but this has softer edges.
You'll need the latest version of procreate to take advantage of all the brush features, and preferably an Apple Pencil for the pressure sensitive brushes.
Procreate 4 is here, and its amazing! You can now install a LOT of brushes at once using the new Files app in iOS 11. We recommend backing up your purchase using an iCloud account (its free), or syncing them to Files with iTunes.
First things first... USE SAFARI on iPad!
Also make sure you open the link in the full Safari app (it must be Safari, no other browser will work), as the side-loaded one gmail/other email apps use won’t work.
Tip Top Brush sets use the new "Brushset" file format made available in Procreate 4.2+. This is great! You can now load brushes with one single file. Once you've completed your purchase, select the blue button "access digital content" and you will be presented with a list of your purchased brush sets.
If it ends in *.brushset, it is the file you want (color swatches go in the swatches menu.)
1. Using Safari on iPad, tap the file and wait for it download (might take a few minutes if you have a slow collection, the brushes often use high resolution textures). Most sets are around 30MB, but it tells you next to the file name. Please make sure once you click the brush file name you give it long enough to download, especially if you have a slower internet connection. Once you click the link it will begin loading another page, but it won’t look like much is happening until it’s done.
2. Now select "Open in Procreate". Done! The set can be found as a new group in the brushes menu.
