How to Create Custom Water Splash Brushes in Adobe Photoshop

Water splashes are a beautiful phenomenon. The randomness of liquid physics ensures that every splash is unique. The result is a natural struggle of the fluid as an external force flings it around and gravity insists it return to a resting state. This struggle takes place in the span of a fraction of a second, and it often happens too quickly for us to be able to capture and appreciate the simple majesty of the effect.

Because water splashes are so familiar, yet elusive, they make for excellent compositional elements. The image of a splash also conveys movement and mood. If you want to use them in your own designs, you probably consider purchasing stock images as your only option. This Quick Tip is here to show you that with a bit of effort, you too can create your own beautiful water splashes to use!

Brushes, Beloved Brushes

As you begin to explore the wonders of Photoshop Brushes, one of the things you should keep in mind is that having a massive selection of brushes loaded in Photoshop will soak up memory. It’s not unmanageable, but it can get out of hand if Photoshop has to load thousands of high-resolution brushes every time it starts. Consider keeping your .abr files stored in a separate folder and then loading that brush set as needed.

Custom Brushes in Photoshop are one of the most fun and interesting ways to add visual flavor and authentic texture to any digital work. Learn to love them and they will love you back.
