  1. Create a new layer and keep the blend mode set to Normal. Rename the layer "Blue Halftones."
  2. Using the same blue as the linework, color your blue halftones. You can select your halftone brushes from the Brush Menu. If you do not have the brush menu on your screen, you can access it by selecting Window>Brushes. You will notice the halftones line up perfectly with one another when layered.
  3. Create a new layer and set the blend mode to Multiply. Rename the layer "Red Halftones."
  4. Color in your red halftone dots and lines. The halftones can be layered if you want to shade an area with a different hafltone.
  5. Select the red layer and nudge it over to create an offset.


DupliTone halftone brushes make it easy to add authentic halftones and shading that look like they came straight off a 1950s printing press.
