The application comes with stencils, rulers and many cool things, but doesn’t really require the user to have a thorough know-how of its operation, as it is fairly ease to use and learn. It features pencils and chalks smudge, thick paint smears and blends, and even markers, which work just like they do in the real world scenario and moreover many of the tools can be adjusted to give different effects.

The user may paint with thinned oils, use wet or dry markers. What’s more, it is even possible to soften the pencil and control the hardness of the crayon, and do everything that one can fancy. It also has a Metallic Paint option, and by turning it on, the user can work with spreadable and easy-to-blend gold and silver oil paints, as well as sparkling glitter, silver leaf sprays etc., so as to avail the benefits of wide range of different effects.
