What is Pattern Stamp Tool(S)?

Pattern Stamp Tool(S) is a very useful tool while making designs. You can use it to give interesting textures and backgrounds to your image. This tool allows you to create your own pattern stamps. You can fill pattern in your image using this tool.

How to work with this tool?

We are going to create a hand-made painting using Pattern Stamp Tool(S).

Photoshop filter gallery provides many different tools to paint but if you really want to turn your image into a hand-made piece of art; look no further then this Pattern Stamp Tool.


Step 2 Add An Image

Add an image which you want to turn into a hand-made painting. 


Go to Edit >Define Pattern and set the pattern name as 'FLOWER'.

The pattern created will be of the same size as the document. This is very important thing to note when you start working with this tool. 


Step 3 Define Custom Pattern



Now, select Pattern Stamp Tool(S) from the tools panel and set the values in it according to your requirement. Here, I have set the following values in the option bar: 21 pixel soft edged brush, visible Aligned and Impressionist. 



Step 4 Add Semi Transperent Layers For Pattern Stamp

Now, after the pattern is set, we need to get the layers ready to draw on. Add a new layer by clicking on new layer icon from the layers palette. Fill the layer with black colour and set the name of the layer as "BLACK" and opacity to 80%.

  • set-opcity
  • new-flower

Add a new layer on top of the BLACK layer, and name this layer "PAINT". Keep the opacity of this layer to 100%. 



Step 5 Apply Pattern Stamp Tool

Now, we are ready to paint. Paint on the layer named FLOWER with the Pattern Stamp Tool, use long strokes to do the outline of the flower and shorter strokes to fill in the flower. We can easily erase any mistake by using Eraser Tool. 


Now, resize your brush to 9 pixel and fill the area of the FlOWER. 


 Now, finish the painting and reset the opacity of BLACK layer to 100%.
