Question on how to use swatches

Hi. I would like to know if anyone can tell me how to use a swatch with a brush. I've got a swatch for blond hair and a hair brush to use, but I can't figure out how to use them together. Can anyone help? Thank you

Re: Question on how to use swatches

Select the brush you want to use along with the brush settings that you are going to use. Then bring the mouse over to the swatches palette where it will change to the eyedropper. Click on the swatch that you want to use. Then the brush will paint with the selected swatch.

You will need to load the hair brush into the brushes list if you have not done so already.

Okay, I did what you said and the blond is made of seven different colors. Can I use them all at the same time? I mean, can I click on more than one box to use? The idea is to have the hair blend with all these colors at the same time I'm painting.

I think you will have to use each color individually, blending via the opacity and flow of the brush with each color.
