This product is for Illustrator but there is also a version for Photoshop:

This comprehensive, realistic watercolor and gold/silver/rose gold bundle is now available for Illustrator! I have been working on this for months, painting, perfecting, tweaking, adding more and more and more content...until finally I have managed to rein myself in, and actually release the product so you can enjoy it! I hope you will find that this becomes your go-to watercolor product.

Including over 100 realistic watercolor vectors and a complete set of 187 hand painted watercolor textures as seamless Illustrator swatches (raster), in every color and color combination imaginable. I am also a bit obsessed with gold and everything that glitters, so I had to throw in a few (which turned into 69!) ALL NEW shimmer swatches as well.


  • 3 .AI swatch libraries including 69 total seamless gold, silver, and rose gold swatches in raster format. The textures include shimmer paint, foil, and other subtly striking metallic textures made with love from hand painted gold gouache, gold ink and my top secret techniques ;)
  • 9 .AI swatch/graphic style libraries including 187 total seamless watercolor textures in raster format, logically organized by color. These are all based on my own hand painted works and very carefully scanned and digitized to preserve the organic feel. I have taken it further in the graphic styles with several uniquely realistic features including a "watery edge" and semi-transparency in lighter areas where you would expect real watercolors to be semi-transparent.
  • 3 .AI files containing 110 total decorative and hand painted vectors, painstakingly done so as to preserve the brushed details.
  • 2 "Cheat Sheets" to help you quickly and easily find the perfect watercolor or shimmer styles for every project.
  • Illustrated instructions on how to load and use the styles and vectorize action.
  • This package is ideal for all your gorgeous watercolor projects such as wedding stationary, art prints, printables, mugs, decorations, and about a million other things!
  • Free support: I am always happy to help with any questions or issues! Please send me a message via Creative Market for any support.

These are very high quality textures and vectors, and there are a lot of them, so please make sure you have the space and give it some time to download.

TROUBLESHOOTING: When you open the .ai swatch files, your artboard will be blank. This is as it should be because these files are swatch libraries. You will find the file content in your swatches palette (window - swatches) and you can apply them to objects in your artboard as desired. The included user guide gives detailed information on how to load and use the swatches, and you are also very welcome to send me a PM for personalized support. Thanks!

I would love to see what you come up with, so you are welcome to share links to your work (and/or requests for future updates)! Thanks and enjoy!

I’ve got tons more swatch palettes for Illustrator! All of them are completely unique from each other so you will always get something new!

How do I change the color of the swatches in Illustrator?

Yes you can change the colors in a few simple steps: First go to Window -> Appearance, then in the little window that pops up, click "add new fill" and choose the color you want. Click "opacity" and change the mode from "normal" to "color."

How do I reduce file sizes in Illustrator?

There are some simple tricks which can help you keep your file sizes smaller.

1. Use Object -> Rasterize on anything using the swatches.

2. Run action "Delete Unused Panel Items" that should be in your defaults. You can run it after you have rasterized the objects you have used the swatches on. If you have tried a lot of different swatches on your document, it could be saving them and making the file larger.

3. If you are saving a PDF, be sure to **uncheck** "preserve editing capabilities."

4. Saving as a different format other than PDF (Jpg, png) also reduces the filesize a LOT without reducing the print quality, if those formats are an option for you.

How do I scale the textures once applied to an object in Illustrator?

To resize the textures once applied to an object: Go to Object -> Transform -> Scale. Uncheck "Transform Objects" and check "Transform Patterns" then change the scale in the box labeled "uniform."
