Brush Tip: When using these, they look really quite pretty just on their own. However, to achieve the look that I’ve done here in my preview image, you’ll use a white color to apply the brush. Make sure it’s on its own layer. Then, go in and add a layer style to that layer: outer glow. Choose a bright, vivid color. I changed then changed the opacity of that glow to about 55-60%, and I moved the “size” slider up until it looked good to me. Working with a brush that was sized to 400 pixels, for instance, I changed the “size” of the glow to 49 pixels. Play around with it until it looks how you want!
