    Photoshop paint brush effect

    Hey...
    does anyone know a straight forward way to create graphics that look like they were done with a paint roller or a wide paint brush that is running out of paint.
    Sort of like the background graphics on this site: http://www.oneill.com/

    I want to create some background images that have rough edges like that, that look like they were painted by hand.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Oh.
    Never mind. I was able to figure out a pretty good method.

    Pretty simple actually, at least to get close to the effect you're looking for, i did a quick one in photoshop...

    Start out by creating a new document with 300x300 pixels. Grab your paint bucket tool and fill the canvas with the color you want to use.

    on the layer your just filled, click on the 'layer mask' button on the layers pallette.

    Next (and this is where results will vary)...select your brush tool. In your default brush selection box, scroll down to the 'spatter' or 'chalk' brush.

    Then with your layer mask selected and black being your main color, start brushing away the edges of the document.

    To make it easier, you might want to expand your canvas at this point (image ->canvas size) so you can see exactly what's being taken away.

    and this is what the results are (very quickly done)



    (images coming soon)
