Free Thick Paint Brushes; New Papers Available for Corel Painter


Hello Everyone,

I finally have my new category of brushes finished.  I call them Skip’s Best Thick Paints, and I believe they are my best thick paints.  I wanted a set that included stiff bristles and palette knives.  I also wanted to create a set that would work well with a new set of papers I designed and offered by Corel called Dynamic Papers.  You can get the papers by opening Painter, then go to Help > Welcome > Get More > Dynamic Papers.  There is another set available called Natural Papers that look mighty good, too.

The following videos will tell you about the brushes, papers, and a paper script library that can be downloaded .

The previous post shows some examples of work done with the new variants.  This is a work in progress, but will show you how nice the textures can look with these variants and papers.

Work In Progress, Corel Painter 2019, Watercolor and Thick Paint Variants, and Dramatic Papers

You can download the brushes at following link:

Skip’s Best Thick Paint

You can download the Paper Script Library at following link:

Paper Scripts-1

I hope you enjoy the brushes.  I think they are some of my bests.  If you do like them and find they are useful…consider making a donation.  Thank you bunches.  Skip

    • Hi Sandy, Currently I don’t sell my work…I know that sounds crazy, but I just don’t want the hassle. 🙂 I post work here on this blog. If you look at the top of the page, you will see a bunch of pages…and there are two galleries listed. Watercolor gallery and mixed media gallery. Just click on either and that gallery will open and you can see the work
      I am a digital painter, meaning that I paint using Corel Painter Software. It emulates traditional media. In this post, there are four videos. Watch the ones about brushes and you will see how the paint is applied in the computer. I hope this helps. If you need more info, message me and I’ll give you more information. Enjoy, Skip

  3. You are not only super knowledgeable, an amazing artist, an inspiration to me and many others – you are also extremely creative and generous. Thanks Skip!

  4. Hi Skip, I had a chance to play with these brushes this morning. I just wanted to tell you that I really love them. They will definitely be in my library of keepers. Thank you again so much for sharing these. 💘

    • Thank you for your kind comment. I am liking these variants a lot, too and hope they will be popular. Do post something you did with them…I would love to see it. Thanks again!!!

    • Hi Carolyn, the papers are temporarily down. There was a glitch in the download process For Mac users and Corel is currently fixing it. The scripts do work. Have you looked at the first video? Near the end I explain how to install and use them. If you are unfamiliar with scripts, the video will help. If you are familiar and you still think the scripts are at fault, please write back and give me a detailed list of what you did to download, save, and install the scripts. Then tell me what you are doing to activate the script. That is the only way I can help…just saying they do not work doesn’t help me find the issue. So please provide me with more details. Thank you very much.

  5. I can not wait to upgrade to Painter 19 so I can utilize these beautiful brushes. These look wonderful! You are so creative and helpful. Thank you.

  6. I was wondering Skip since I have Painter 2015, if I could in the saving of the scriptlibrary file for the paper, save it as a paperlibrary file? You know change the file name. Would I be able to use it, you think? I love what you are doing in painter and I hope the best for you.
    Thanks, Linda Foote

    • Hi Linda, You do not want to change the scriptlibrary to a paperlibrary…they are two different things entirely. I don’t think scripts have changed since Painter 2015, so you should be able to install the scripts library into Painter 2015 via the Scripts panel. But, I do not have painter 2015 installed anymore, so I cannot check it. It would be best to upgrade to Painter 2019.

  7. I can’t believe I finally am getting in here to try those BEST new thick paint brushes! Thank you Skip, you truly are a gift! And thank you for being who you were meant to be, if that sounds a bit corny, sorry. LOL See ya in the DAA…. : )
