John’s Impasto! comes with a set of 12 Impasto and 12 Varnish Layer Styles. Create art from scratch or apply virtual varnish to existing art. Each set has 4 surface styles: Matte, Satin, Gloss, and Smooth and is further sub-divided into Light, Medium, and Heavy. Impasto! layers can be interactively changed with a single mouse click.
Integral to John’s Impasto! is a set of six custom textures that interactively provide authentic gesso & varnish surface appearances to brushwork. This textural skin becomes fully visible as pressure-controlled brush strokes are built up over repeated stroke application. Each Impasto! layer’s texture is fully adjustable via the Bevel & Emboss layer style associated with the layer.
John’s Impasto! tool presets are divided into depth-applying brushes and depth-removing erasers. Using one of the erasers on an Impasto! layer is like inscribing into wet gesso. A wide variety of surface appearances can be created using a combination of additive and subtractive strokes. And, any Photoshop brush can be used on an Impasto! layer.
