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.

AquaType - Vector Watercolor Effects

Included in this set:

• 20 Seamless Watercolour Graphic Styles
• 1 Watercolour Vectorize Action
• 8 Inkmark textures .EPS
• Quick Setup Guide .PDF (CS3/CS4/CS5)
• Quick Setup Guide .PDF (CS6/CC)

Software requirements: Adobe Illustrator CS3 and newer. Will not work in any other graphics software.

This product was originally featured in The Beautifully Artistic Designer’s Kit (1000s of Creative Resources)

    Just wanted to let people know that I use this product on shapes in Illustrator all the time and it works just fine… it’s Graphic Styles and Actions so please don’t miss out on buying this thinking it is for text only.

  2. tsaritzky@gmail.com says:

    I absolutely love your Inkwell product, and would also love info on making AquaType work on vectors. Would Inkwell work the same way?

    • sarah-jane@designcuts.com says:

      Hey Tracy,

      This pack is designed specifically for type but I can definitely help you out if you need some watercolour effects for other parts of your work!

      If you were after a pack that you could use for your vectors, I would recommend checking out our Watercolour Design Kit:

      I hope this helps 🙂

  3. Vicky Martin says:

    Hi, Please can you send me the information on how to get this effect for vector based objects. Many thanks

    • sarah-jane@designcuts.com says:

      Hey Vicky,

      Thank you so much for your comment!

      I’m really sorry but this particular item does not work on vectors I am afraid. If you were after a pack that you could use across your designs, I would recommend checking out our Watercolour Design Kit: http://bit.ly/1Sfyrgz and there’s also some great watercolour styles in the Watercolor Glitter Styles Bundle from Creators Couture: http://bit.ly/2fDjgPX as well 🙂

    just like everyone else on this thread I would love some information on what resources I need to apply this to vector objects please (maybe you could include some links in your reply saving yourself some time in the future 🙂

    • carol@designcuts.com says:

      Hey Kelly,

      Thanks for the comment and I am so sorry for any confusion with previous comments. This resource is for type only and will not work with vector objects- a different watercolour resource would be required for that.

      I have popped you over an email with some suggestions for this 🙂

  5. meganne829 says:

    Hi, I am new to using both Adobe and Illustrator and having trouble installing this files. Could I get some more detailed information on how I can get this working?

    I am getting a message saying adjust image trace setting to that found in the instrustions then save that preset.

    Please help.

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