IR Fiber Optic Paint Brush

I have been playing around with fiber optics and infrared light and this has been one of my experiments with it.
There may be painters out there that miss the tactile experience with their digital painting.

I have also done an experiment with the fiber optic brush, It was a wonderful experience. But I suggest that the light of the fiber optic should be turn off while the paint is in wet stage.

Thanks for the reply. I’m not sure how you mean by " turn off while the paint is in wet stage". The painting code is using the blobs from opencv example in a draw function that I put in a FBO. I control the alpha by mapping the centroid. Like when I’m not moving very much the “paint” comes out a lot but when I move fast it thins out. I turn the light off and on by hitting a button on the brush. I didn’t really want to get into simulated paint stuff. I wanted a simple way to get around coding brush simulation. Have you ever check this out “Crayola Color Wonder Magic Light Brush”
oh yeah your link seems to be broken. (<.><.>)
