How to Resize Halftone Brushes in Procreate

Any retro artist worth their salt will likely have a quality set of halftone brushes in their digital art arsenal. But if you're just getting started with halftones, Procreate, or both, you might not know everything that they're capable of doing. Because your art isn't one size fits all, your halftones shouldn't be either!

Follow the video below for step-by-step instructions on how to resize halftone brushes in Procreate. We'll be using our DupliTone Halftone Brushes.

  1. Click the Brush icon to open the Brush Panel. Click the brush that you would like to resize.
  2. Toggle to Grain in the Brush Studio menu.
  3. Find the Scale option and type in a new percentage. (💡 NOTE: It is important not to use the slider when rescaling your brushes. The number that you see is a rounded percentage, and not the actual scale of the pattern. In order to make sure that everything is exactly right, always type in the percentage.)

It is important that you resize each brush so that the halftones line up properly. Not doing so will result in unwanted patterns.

And that's it! You're ready to get creating. For extra efficiency, you can duplicate your brush folder and resize each brush in that folder to a certain amount. That way, when you need your halftones in a specific percentage, you'll already have them.


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