How to make a watermark brush in procreate

Creating a watermark brush in Procreate is a straightforward process. Watermark brushes are handy for adding your logo or signature to your digital artwork. Here’s how you can make one:

Step 1: Create Your Watermark

Before you can create a watermark brush, you need to design your watermark. You can create a simple text-based watermark with your name or logo using Procreate’s text tool or by importing an image file. Ensure your watermark has a transparent background (PNG format is great for this).

Step 2: Import Your Watermark

If you have your watermark as an image file (PNG with a transparent background), you’ll need to import it into Procreate. To do this:

  1. Open the canvas where you want to create your watermark brush.
  2. Tap the “+” icon to create a new layer.
  3. Import your watermark image by tapping the wrench icon (Actions) > Add > Insert a Photo. Select your watermark image from your photo library.

Step 3: Convert Your Watermark to a Brush

Now that your watermark is on a separate layer, you can convert it into a brush:

  1. Ensure your watermark layer is selected.
  2. Tap the brush icon in the top menu.
  3. In the Brush Library, you’ll find the watermark under “Recent Brushes.”
  4. Tap it, and you’ll be taken to the Brush Studio.

Step 4: Adjust Brush Settings

In the Brush Studio, you can fine-tune your watermark brush settings:

  • Shape: You can adjust the brush size and opacity according to your preferences.
  • Dynamics: Depending on your watermark, you might want to experiment with dynamics settings like Jitter and Streamline.
  • General: Rename your brush if needed.

Make sure you test your watermark brush on a new layer to see how it looks. You can adjust the settings until you’re satisfied with the appearance.

Step 5: Save Your Watermark Brush

Once you’re happy with how your watermark brush looks and functions, you can save it for future use:

  1. Tap the brush settings menu icon (three horizontal lines) in the Brush Studio.
  2. Select “Duplicate” to create a copy of your watermark brush.
  3. Rename your duplicate brush to something descriptive (e.g., “My Watermark”).
  4. Tap “Done” to save the brush.

Your watermark brush is now saved and can be easily accessed in the future from your brushes library whenever you want to add your watermark to your artwork.

That’s it! You’ve successfully created a watermark brush in Procreate. Now, you can use it to quickly add your watermark to your digital art with ease.
