Brush cursor.#

The brush is the main way of interacting with any painting and sculpting mode. While click & dragging in the 3D Viewport it will create a stroke and apply an effect depending on various brush settings.


It is highly recommended to use a Graphics Tablet for a better brush feel and additional features.

Brush Control#

These are the most common hotkeys for controlling the brush.

  • Set brush size F

  • Set brush strength Shift-F

  • Rotate brush texture / Set brush weight Ctrl-F

After pressing these hotkeys, you can then either adjust the value interactively or by typing in numbers. Move the mouse right or left to increase/reduce the value (additionally with precision (Shift) and/or snapping (Ctrl) activated). Finally confirm (LMB, Return) or cancel (RMB, Esc).

You can also invert the brush direction/effect by holding Ctrl.
