Want some smooth texture?
If you have done digital art for a long period, then you can idealize that blending brushes is one of the major components to make your final work mind-blowing.
Blending brushes give us depth and help make dimensions and 3D objects. And to give you the good news, there are many blending brushes to make your art pop up!
NOTE: – Blending brushes are brushes that are used with the smudge tool, so you can just click the smudge tool option from the toolbar and select any of the brushes which we are going to discuss today. This is so fascinating because it is two in one, you can use that brush for normal paintings and also as blending brushes as per your requirements!
- Use the Procreate Smudge Brushes Pack
This pack is designed for using brushes along with the smudge tool. What you need to do is double click the smudge tool option, a specific number of brushes will pop up on your screen and you can select anyone as per your needs.
Theoretically, you can select anyone brush and select the smudge tool, then it would be a smudge brush, however, not all brushes are suitable for smudging, so the brushes we are going to speak about are important!
With the smudge tool you will experiment with the colors which are already on the screen, so it depends on how you want it. Do you want to add more colors and blend them?
To add up more context, it is possible to blend with a paintbrush too! However, you may like to smudge some parts to make it look better.
You can either blend with a smudge brush or a paintbrush, it is totally up to you, both are exceptional at their places. It is all trial-and-error; you need to experiment with it a little. And, you need to understand to find out which is the best for which purpose.
As we all know, art is subjective, choosing which type of brush to blend or make it look better is also subjective. Just play around and it is a creativity blast!
The following are what you will get: –
- Watercolour Brush
- Palette Knife Brush
- Spray Paint Splatter

- Use the Procreate Gradient Brush Set
This is a unique brush set, isn’t it? Well, these brushes can be of big help for your blending portions. Remember that our goal is to finely blend, and this adds up to it.
Gradient, where two or more specific colors will blend between or among each, is always a perfect blend. You just cannot turn a blind eye to that.
And having brushes which would help you do that sounds nice. It is really hard to get a perfect blending like the ones using gradient tool, which can be tough, sometimes with brush manipulation when you quickly need to blend colors.
