How can I get a paint colorblock effect on the edges similar to what is on the edges of the red portion of Saul Bass’s One Two Three poster?
I have two layers, one is a background that is white. The second layer (above the background layer) has a rectangle selection that is filled with color. I would like the edges of color filled square to resemble the red edges here:
Jagged edges with Gimp
These are the steps I took for jagged edges using a predefined default Script Fu filter.
Select an area:
Choose Select – Distort…:
Choose appropriate values for desired effect.
Bucket fill selection:
Add an artistic effect for brush strokes
- Grow selection by the desired width of the effect
- choose a Filter -> Artistic which meets your needs.
