Box Artwork by: sarahwilliaillustration
Tip Top Watercolor Wash is finally here! The newest and highest quality watercolor brushes for Procreate on iPad. This set distinguishes itself with very soft wet-in-wet marks, perfect for creating dreamy and ethereal watercolor paintings, as Sarah (link at the top) did with the box art :-)
Based on original high-res scans, the source paintings were made with artist-grade watercolors on 100% cotton, 300 LB watercolor paper. These brushes are rendered at the absolute highest resolution possible in the Procreate brush engine, and are simply the finest watercolors you can get on the iPad!
Included are 16 brushes:
6x Pressure-sensitive Paint brushes: These are the main attraction! Paint effortless washes of beautiful watercolor, seamlessly blending together. These are beautiful, soft and silky.
9x Accent brushes: These are individual marks which add the icing on the cake to really sell the watercolor realism. Place a mark down, move it into position, alpha-lock the layer and color it with one of the other soft paint brushes. You can also shape it convincingly using another watercolor brush to erase or mask unwanted parts away :-)1x Gradient brush: A very large watercolor gradient, excellent for establishing tone and texture. Able to go super huge and stay crisp!
Here are some raw brush strokes of the various brushes
You'll need Procreate 4 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.
