    This are nice brushes (which I originally found on Brusheezy.com) but I don’t understand how I can recreate the preview image above. When I draw with the brush it doesn’t have the white centre which really sets it off.

    I assume this is something to do with multiple layers and blending modes? Can you provide any hints?

    • rtpHarry, I don’t remember exactly what I did, but it looks like I set the fireworks layers to Overlay. It’s possible I manually went in on a separate layer and painted a soft white in the center of the bursts and then set that layer to overlay.

      Just experiment with blending modes. :)

    I really cant figure it out :(

    I’ve tried red brush, then white brush on diff layer and moved it around in all different ways with feather, contract, scaling it, using a slightly smaller brush, putting the white underneath and having the red as overlay, gone through every overlay style…

    Nothing I have tried comes close to getting that white hot look running down the centre of each of the sprays of firework.

    I still haven’t figured out how to recreate your effect. Is there anything you can do to help me please?

    Also can I suggest moving the capture image above the textbox in your comment form. My autocomplete kicks in and covers up the image as it is at the moment :)
