Thick Paint Media

By Cher Pendarvis

In this tutorial, Painter Master Cher Pendarvis introduces you to the new Thick Paint media in Painter 2018. Thick paint has the look and feel of traditional Impasto, and adds depth and texture to your strokes. Cher first gives you a tour of the thick paint media and brush panels and demonstrates the various brush types in this category. She explains the difference between the bristle-type brushes and palette knives, and shows you how to adjust the paint load for different looks. You will also learn how different surface lighting settings affect thick paint.

With the new Thick Paint media, you can plunge into a digital painting experience like no other with voluminous media that lets you pile up, push around, carve into, scrape, and blend your way to realistic painted perfection. Apply pressure, tilt and rotation using Bristle Brushes, and work with Palette Knives to achieve unbelievably real brushstrokes.
