Great for you, Neve. You are making some remarkable progress with Painter. Well done.

As you know the brushes in the Cloner group are predefined to clone.

In case you haven't discovered it yet ANY brush variant can be turned into a cloner brush and used in the same way.

Here's how:
* Assuming you've opened your image and setup the clone source, you need to be able to get to the Colors palette, so be sure it's visible.
* Now choose a brush from any other category (your choice).
* On the Colors palette toward the bottom-left is a button that looks like a "stamp." (It's referred to as the "Clone color" button. It's icon looks like the one used for Photoshop's "Clone Tool.") When this option is in effect (click it) you're telling Painter to draw color from the underlying clone source image, not the currently selected foreground color.

This works in a fashion similar to Photoshop's "Pattern Stamp Tool" where the color source is the current pattern or the "History Brush" or "Art History Brush" where the color source is the active snapshot.

CAUTION:
It's really easy to forget to turn ON this option when selecting a non-cloner brush. By default it's OFF for all other brushes.

So, if you pick a brush and start painting away and get (say) all yellow or black or red strokes, it means you forgot to activate this option. Just "undo," click the button and clone away.

Have fun, keep experimenting and don't blame me if you get less sleep tonight!

~Danny~

Since Neve brought this thread back to the top, I though I may as well post a couple images I made several weeks ago. Basically, I was playing with the bandpass idea, running Highpass=6, GBlur = 1.5 on the orginal to greatly simplify the image. Than I ran every filter possible on separate copies of the bandpass to compare results. Here are a couple of these further refined / tweaked:

Image 1. Base image. Sketch>Plaster. Fooled around with some filtered noise and Hue/Sat to colorize to get an embossed hammered copperish thing.

Image 2. Base image. Other>Minimum. Image>Adj>Equalize. Artistic> Sponge.

-Mark
