Get 100% Vector Watercolor Effects Directly in Illustrator

Using the technology behind my hugely successful product VectorPress, I’ve managed the impossible. By that I mean, getting realistic watercolor effects in Illustrator. All you have to do is choose 1 of the 20 watercolor textures, click play and you’re done. It’s literally that easy.

The effect also adds inconsistent edges to the type, like you would get when working the paint to the edge of the water. At the same time it adds a hand written look to any font, which can be easily turned off if you’re already working with hand drawn type.

          I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this pack was created for type and so will unfortunately not work with vectors. I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.

          I have just popped you an email that should offer some more information.

  3. Craig Dennis

    Can’t these watercolor type effects be applied to any vector object? Does type have to be live or can it be outlined?

      Could I also get the information for applying the watercolor effect to vector images? Thanks!


        Hey Druanne,

        This pack is designed specifically for type so it won’t work with vectors I am afraid! If you need some watercolour effects for other parts of your work, I would recommend checking out our Watercolour Design Kit:

        I hope this helps :)
