Learn how to create a stamp brush in Procreate and open up a whole new world of digital design.
Lately, I’ve been trying to incorporate more illustrations into my hand-lettered designs in Procreate. I’m not all that great at illustrating just yet but one technique that makes my process easier is using stamp brushes. Stamp brushes simplify my workflow and allow me to create more in a shorter amount of time. Today I’m going to show you just how easy it is to make a stamp brush in Procreate.
WHAT IS A STAMP BRUSH?
A stamp brush is a special type of brush in Procreate. Regular brushes produce strokes. Stamp brushes produce a single element when the Apple Pencil is tapped onto the iPad screen. Examples of stamp brushes can be hearts, flowers, stars etc.
HOW DO YOU INSTALL STAMP BRUSHES IN PROCREATE?
Procreate does not come with any default stamp brushes so you have to install them into Procreate if you want to use them. Many designers offer stamp brushes for free. You can also find Procreate stamp brushes on sites like Creative Market. Installing stamp brushes into Procreate is the same process as installing regular brushes. I have a detailed tutorial on how to install brushes into Procreate here.
