Paint tool

💻 Shortcut: -

🥽 Quick swap: None

The Paint tool allows you to add color to your creations. The Paint tool works closely with the Color picker, use the Color picker to select the color that will be applied with the Paint tool. 

The resolution of the paint applied with the Paint tool depends on layer resolution. Increasing layer resolution will allow you to achieve a higher level of detail with both clay and paint. 

Paint tool parameters

Brush Shape

Select the base shape for the brush

Different brush shapes have different parameters available. For example, you can adjust the width, height, and depth of a cube, or you can adjust the radius and thickness of a torus. A full list of brush shape parameters is available here.

Scale

Modify the size of the brush

Increase or decrease the size of the brush. Very large brush sizes may cause a delay between adding clay and the clay appearing.

Hardness
Adjust the falloff of the Paint toolAdjust hardness to control the transition between colors at the edge of the Paint tool's brush. 
Pressure
Toggle pressure sensitivity

Pressure sensitivity allows you to dynamically adjust the scale of your stroke as you draw out your strokes.

  • 🥽 Vary the amount of pressure you apply with TT during your stroke.
  • 💻 Pressure sensitivity works best with a pressure sensitive pen and tablet. 
Single
Toggle single modeSingle mode will only place a single stamp of your brush when you pull the trigger instead of constantly applying clay along your stroke.
Lazy
Toggle Lazy strokeWith Lazy stroke enabled, the stroke is dragged behind the cursor rather than appearing directly beneath it. This helps create smoother strokes and clean curves.
Steady
Toggle Steady strokeSteady stroke takes time to catch up with the cursor. Unlike Lazy stroke, Steady stroke will eventually reach the cursor. This helps create smoother strokes and clean curves.
Rate
Adjust the rate at which paint is appliedRate allows you to change how much paint is applied to the clay throughout the stroke. A lower rate results in smoother colors and cleaner gradients, while a high rate results in hard edges and solid colors.
