How to create stamp brush in Procreate

In this article, you will learn how to create a stamp brush. It is used by simply tapping the pencil on the canvas. And you can create a stamp brush out of absolutely any shape, text, or illustration.

Stamp brushes are ideal for logo and copyright because you use them all the time or any kind of template.

Step-by-step process

Step 1

Create a square canvas – I usually go with 3000px by 3000px and 300DPI.

Step 2

Now, once your canvas is open, that is the place where you would create the shape for your stamp. And the very first thing you have to do is to turn off the background layer.

Step 3

It is time to draw your stamp! You can choose any kind of brush you would like. While you can choose any brush, the color you should be drawing with must be white.

Step 4

Once you are happy with your drawing, go to Actions > Add > and Copy Canvas.

Step 5

Go to the Brush Library, and the first thing you would have to do is to create a separate folder for your Stamp, so it doesn’t get lost. 

To do that, go all the way to the top until you see a plus sign on the blue background. Tap on it and a new folder will appear – name it however you would like.

Step 6

To create a brush, tap on a plus sign at the top right corner, and it will take you to the “Brush Studio” – where you can modify your brushes.

Step 7

Go to “Shape” on the side menu. Then tap Edit > Paste – now the shape that you just created appeared on this page. 

Click “Done” to save the shape of your brush.

Step 8

Now, go to “Stroke path” to adjust the Spacing – set the spacing to the maximum. It will make your brush appear as separate elements, instead of one continuous line.

Step 9

To fix the opacity, go to the “Apple Pencil” section, and set Opacity to none. Now, all elements will appear with the same level of opacity.

Step 10

This step is optional. But you can go back to “Shape” and play around with “Scatter”. Scatter will change the direction of some of the elements to increase the randomness.

This step is optional because it doesn’t work for all brushes. It might be great for a start stamp brush, but won’t really work for a logo stamp.

Step 11

Go, to the “Properties” section to set the brush preview and size. Turn on “Use stamp preview”. And set the desired minimum and maximum brush sizes.

Step 12

Next, go to the “About this brush” section to name your stamp brush.

Tap where it says “Untitled brush” at the top to rename it. You can even get fancy and sign your name as the brush creator and even add your picture.

Step 13

Your stamp brush is ready – click “Done” on the top right corner. Now, it is time to test it!

Yay! You have created your stamp brush in Procreate!
