    I need to paint a texture onto an object in photoshop, can i make a brush with this texture then just paint over the object with the brush, as if i was painting a colour onto it, but instead of a new colour appearing, a new texture covers the surface instead?

    I know that Gary, my question is can i use the new brush like a paint brush but paint a texture instead of a plain colour?

    I think you can to a point but going over the same part more than once seems to fill up that area with the forground colour selected until it blocks out.

    If you overlay the texture over the whole photo and then create a mask and invert it to hide then you can paint in the texture that way.

    If the object is flat and the original texture big enough it might work, but there are other ways, you could select the area and use the texturiser (and load your texture) if the object isn't flat and you need to "wrap" the texture over it look up displacement maps.

    ok made a brush and located it in my brush palette, i made one copy colour and one mono, when i try to use the brushes, i just get the shape of the brush and no texture, i took a sample of skin and hoped i could create a brush from that so i could 'paint' skin onto an object?
