Fairy Light Brushes for Illustrator by The Artifex Forge

Deck your designs, illuminate your illustrations!

Create dazzling designs with my astonishingly authentic fairy light brushes. They were sourced from genuine lights and use an innovative layered brush system to combine two types of brushes to great effect. Perfect for seasonal and celebratory projects!

So how does a layered brush work?

I’ve used a graphic style to combine wire and bulb brushes. You can apply the style to a vector shape or line instantly – there’s no complex system. New to graphic styles? – I’ve included extensive usage documentation (This feature is available for Illustrator CS5 – CC).

Alternatively and for more flexibility, the two types of brushes can be used separately – this second method provides the opportunity to further customize your designs by individually rotating and placing each bulb for maximum realism (This feature is available for Illustrator CS1-CC). You can even create mixed color combos.

The bulbs come in twelve colors but I’ve included instructions explaining how to adjust them to create your own varieties.

Check out the video tutorial to see just how easy these are to use – https://vimeo.com/187179972
