Clone Painting with the Wet Oily and Rough Palette Knife Cloners

Clone Painting with the Wet Oily and Rough Palette Knife Cloners

By Aaron Rutten

In this tutorial, Painter Master Aaron Rutten demonstrates two of the new cloner brushes introduced in Painter 2018: the Wet Oily and Rough Palette Knife cloners. First he gives a demonstration of what each of these brush strokes look like, and how to vary the effect by changing your clone source, paper grain, pressure, brush size and flowmap. Then, starting with a photo, he uses the rough knife cloner to roughly block in different areas of the image, and the wet oily cloner to add finer details to the face.
