Does anyone know how to get the mixer brush tool on Photoshop cs5 to sample gradients and not have the brush apply it as a scale but like the image i attached?
So I tried following such steps: Create a gradient circle with your desire colors. Choose mixer brush in the brush options. Select hard round brush with hardness of 90% or whatever. Select dry heavy load. Sample gradient circle you initially created.
I first tried creating a gradient circle by applying a gradient overlay from the Layer style menu. When I sampled, it viewed the gradient within a scale. I also had to rasterize the circle before I could sample it.
The second thing I tried was using Rasterize, fill content in layers menu and then using the gradient tool. But then I ran into the issue that It wouldn't sample the colors.
