PLEASE NOTE: This portion of the Texture Explained tutorial series applies to almost all versions of Painter. The basics of the paper grain emulation in Painter has been at it’s natural media core from the first version in 1991. While I highly recommend upgrading to the latest Painter 2018 (the new Thick Paint brushes are fabulous!!), the videos on this page, like so many on the PaintboxTV site, are widely applicable across many versions of Painter.
