Create authentic vintage art with The Artifex Forge’s latest Illustrator vintage brush set!

In response to your requests for vintage brushes that don’t stretch on long strokes, The Artifex Forge is proud to present these exceptional anti-stretch pattern brushes. They seamlessly repeat a tile along the stroke rather than stretching one image along the line. This means that you won’t need to change brushes so often, leaving you more time to perfect those authentic-looking designs and classic artwork.

So, What else is so great about this set?

• Sourced from real vintage artwork – for maximum authenticity.
• A huge range of brushes are included – so you’ll always find the correct one for the task at hand.
• Customize the look – layer the brush strokes and give yourself more options.
• Multiple Line Brushes – you can draw multiple lines with just one stroke, saving you time!

Included in this set:

• The Brushes
A variety of vintage hatch and outline brushes. If you are a tablet user, you’ll be pleased to know that a version of the brushes with pressure sensitivity enabled is included (please note that this feature only works in Illustrator CS5+).

• A quick reference guide – This will help you quickly find the right brushes for the task in hand. Please note: This feature is available for CS5, CS6 and CC only.

• Example files – A selection of the preview images. Use these to see how I achieved the look. Please note: These are available for CS5, CS6 and CC only.

• Instructions – A very thorough guide on how to load, apply and then adjust the brushes is supplied.

Software compatibility: Adobe Illustrator CS3 or newer.

    I almost didn’t get these since I already have so many vintage/crosshatch/etching brushes from various bundles. However, I’m thrilled that I did, since these really are a cut above the rest — mostly because many of them are created as pattern brushes, so instead of stretching a single shape along your path, which often either looks squished or stretched, you have a beautiful consistent stroke no matter how long your line is. I’ve been looking for this kind of brush for a while just to make simple lines; the crosshatching is an additional plus (which is actually most of the product). What a great find! Go for it, people!
