Create realistic looking oil paint art in Affinity Designer!

Outstanding Oil Paint Brushes

This authentic looking artist’s tool kit is the result of hours of experimentation, discovering the diverse textures that can be made using oil paint. I’ve used brushes, palette knives, cloths, scraps of cardboard and even my own fingers. The resulting brushes are the closest you’ll get to real oils in Affinity Designer.

So, why is this pack so useful?

Diverse textures – a wide variety of different paint textures are included.

Anti-stretch brushes – The pack contains a mixture of anti-stretch brushes (which don’t distort over long strokes) and art brushes which add a more dynamic feel.

Made with mixing in mind – the gaps in the brushes allow the user to layer the strokes so that the colors below show through – simulating roughly mixed thick paint.

Authentic look – every stroke was created using real oil paint.

Real Canvas Background Pattern – I’ve included a canvas texture to add extra realism to your designs!

Please note; This pack works with Affinity Designer only.

Included in this set:

• The Brushes – 50 authentic, messy oil paint brushes.
• The Canvas Background Texture – Add further realism to your artwork. Sourced from real canvas and supplied in bitmap Tiff and .JPG formats. 4000 x 4000 px.
• A quick reference guide – This will help you quickly find the right brushes for the task in hand. In .PDF format.
• Example file – The ice lolly image has been included for you to backwards engineer.
• Instructions – A very thorough guide on how to load, apply and then adjust the brushes is supplied. This also includes specific digital oil painting tips.

  1. Taufik

    Hi, this is raster brush or vector brush?

    • Zack Parks

      Hey Taufik,

      Thanks for getting in touch and the goodness is that the Outstanding Oil Paint Brushes are vector files. To use these brushes you will need to be in Designer Persona in Affinity!

  2. Aaron

    Do these work in Designer Persona or Pixel Persona? Thanks!

    • Zack Parks

      Hey Aaron,

      thanks for commenting and it’s great to hear that you are interested in picking up the Outstanding Oil Paint Brushes for Affinity. These brushes are vector brushes, so you will need to be in the Designer Persona to be able to use them. :)

    I have downloaded this set of brushes and send to Affinity design but it doesn’t show up for import.
    Please help suggest. I use iPad pro 2020 version.

      Hey Ann,

    • Taufik

      hello, I want to ask. can this brush be used in pixel persona?

      • Zack Parks

        Hey Taufik,

        Thanks for getting in touch and I can certainly answer your query now. These brushes are vector brushes so you will need to be in designer persona to use these brushes.

    Hello, i have downloaded this set of brushes and it won’t appear in brushes set. I have downloaded other brush sets before so it’s not a matter of incorrect process.

    • Annabel Smith

      Thanks so much for reaching out to us Jason, and I am really sorry to hear that you are having difficulty loading your brushes!

      I have just popped you over an email to get a little more information from you about what you are seeing on your side, so that we can take a closer look at this for you.

  5. Vina Howell

    Will these work with Affinity Designer of the iPad Pro?

    • SJ- Community Manager

      Hey Vina,

      Thanks so much for your comment!

      There shouldn’t be any issues using these on the iPad as I believe the software is the same. If you have any issues though, just let us know and we can take a look at that for you :)
