What You’ll Be Creating Adding shattered glass to a design is a great way to introduce drama and interest. The visual depiction of broken glass is very evocative and full of energy and conflict. Creating it is full of technical challenges. Illustrating it is difficult and time consuming, but photographing it well is no easy task! In this Quick Tip, we will give you a great technique for safely generating shattered glass brushes in Adobe Photoshop. 1.

Just bust some glass and take a picture of it!” But this project can actually be a lot more difficult than it looks. The very nature of shattered glass makes it a challenge to work with. It is sharp and can cut. There’s no way to break it in a slow and controlled manner. It must be shattered violently, and the shards have a tendency to fly all over the place in a hugely uncooperative, and dangerous, manner.
