Brush Tool

Vectornator is an intuitive vector graphic design software that empowers you to design anything you can imagine. Our fluid Brush Tool allows you to paint with vector shapes.

What is the Brush Tool?

The customizable Brush Tool allows you to draw freeform paths with variable widths.

Every brush path acts just like any other in Vectornator, meaning you can edit its shape by adjusting the nodes or changing its profile. Vectornator comes with a collection of preset brushes, but you can also create your own.

Create Fluid Vector Shapes

Drawing with the pressure-sensitive Brush Tool feels just like using a real paintbrush on paper. If the smoothness value is set at 0%, the path will follow the free-flowing movement of your hand, and if the value is higher, Vectornator will smooth your brush curves and simplify the path.

Editable Brush Strokes

The best thing about drawing with vectors is that they're endlessly editable at any time. When a path is selected, you can easily adjust your brush size, color, and shape. Further settings can be found in the Brush Editor panel, where you can set the roundness, angle and contour of your brush. And you can even apply brush strokes to existing paths drawn with other tools.

  • Outline into shapes

Customize Your Own Vector Brushes

Vectornator comes with a wide variety of brushes, but you also have the possibility to create your own. The Brush Editor provides infinite possibilities for designing your own digital painting tools. Once you're happy with your settings, tap the save button to add any personalized brush to your library.
