    The zip file for the image pack related to this brush is broken. Could you possibly correct?

    So to adjust the settings to make the marks look more 3D how do you get into the settings? like the drop shadow / outer glow etc.!

    • Stephanie says:

      You put the blood spots on their own layer, and then apply layer styles to that layer. If you’re unsure of how to use layer styles, check out some of my tutorials. That’s not specifically what the tutorials are about, but it explains how to do just that in several of them somewhere.
