AD Plastiline Lab

Plastiline Lab is a Photoshop Panel with tools to emulate Plastiline shapes and textures.
Get really creative with these innovative modelling tools for Photoshop: 27 Plastiline styles, 16 Tools to cut, scrape, push and smooth, 8 seamless backgrounds and 64 Color Swatches!
Build your artwork from zero or apply the Plastiline styles to your existing layers!
and… it’s NON TOXIC!


All the Plastiline Lab styles were created from real plasticine textures and mixed with Photoshop layer styles to create a true factory of plastiline effects.

Here are some samples I’ve created while developing and testing the Plastiline effects:

Plastiline Lab includes 9 basic styles with 3 thickness variants (Flat, Medium & Thick), so for example, the style 01 has three ‘flavours’: 01. Flat, 01. Medium and 01. Thick.
The beauty of each style depends on many factors: the size of the shape to which you are applying it, the colour you are using and the relationship with the other shapes and colors.
I strongly recommend to play, and learn to adjust each style whenever it is necessary, because it is almost impossible to include all the possible variants inside the panel. So take those styles as starting point to start working.
These 8 shapes are a good example of the kind of variations you can obtain working (modifying) with the Plastiline Lab styles:

The Panel was developed and intensively tested with:

  • Adobe Photoshop CS6, CC, CC2014, CC2015 and CC2017+
  • Wacom tablets: Intuos 4, Graphire 4 and Cintiq Companion Hybrid.
  • Windows 10 with a Pc Intel Core I7 3770 @ 3.40Ghz + 8gb RAM + NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960
  • Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit SP1 with an Intel Core i5-2300 CPU @ 2.80Ghz, 4 GB RAM, Ati Radeon HD 5670
  • iMac (27-inch, late 2012) 3,4 Ghz Intel Core i7 with 16 Gb 1600Mhz DDR3 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX 1024 Mb – OSX El Capitan version 10.11.3
  • MacBook Pro (Retina 13-Inch, 2015) 2.7 Ghz Intel Core i5 RAM 8 Gb 1867 Mhz DDR3 Intel Iris Graphics 6100 1536 Mb

Basically, to use AD Plastiline Lab you need a ‘modern’ computer that runs your Photoshop smoothly without any trouble. To use it at it’s best you need also a Wacom tablet or similar. Take that in mind because painting with many layers with effects could generate some kind of lag on machines without enough resources.
