SAI -- HOW TO: Watercolour Effect by onisuu SAI -- HOW TO: Watercolour Effect by onisuu
Please do not repost or edit my art and tutorials!

Use the texture box
and the
Effect box

they are awesome =D

you can also add your own textures into SAI, I believe.
It involves putting things into folders...I never tried it yet so I don't know XD

edit:
If you don't have the texture files, follow this:
 go into your sai folder and find 'papertex' folder, or make one if there isn't one already.
here are all the texture files:
just save them to that papertex folder :3

oh?! o A o
did you set the fringe setting too low? there is a slider bar beside fringe and if it's too close to 0 then the fringe effect will be hard to see!
