How to create Sunburst Brush


Hi, my dear readers. Today the post will be in English. (please, forgive my bad English. I'm fluent in German and Portuguese, but still learning English!)

The actual trend is to create lightning effects at the paper, like sunbrust. Here I'll show you how to create a brush, that you can use over and over again in your layouts!

First of all, open a new document, 2500 x 2500 pixels and fill with black and white gradient.
2- Now you choose Filter> Distort > Wave with the settings here below:

3- your actual document will look like this here below:

4- Now we go back to FILTER effects, and choose Filter > Distort > Shear

and the final image is here:
5- Creating the Brush:
Go to Edit > define brush preset... and name it "my sunburst".

6- Open your paper (3600 x 3600) and apply the brush in a new layer. If you wish so, you can resize the brush to 3600 pixels to fit your paper. Modify the blend mode and the opacity, until you are happy with the results.

Look here my sample paper:
