I made a custom brush, and defined it as a new brush, but when I try to paint with it, it has opacity even though the brush opacity is set to 100%.

Then you need to use a different brush tip that is not a leaf shape with leaf detail shading.  The brush tip you are  using does not lay down 100% opaque paint color pixels. Perhaps use a pattern fill rather that using a brush. Select the leaf area and fill.  Edges area would need to be address so add the patten fill on a separate layer.

 

You could add a Pattern fill leaf layer hide it with a hide all layer mask then paint with White and Black on the hide all layer mask to paint in your leaves.

From the brush preview it looks like you have a sample brush tip that has transparency pixels with opacity less than 100% opacity.

You can build up paint with your brush

Hi JJMack,

 

What I see from Jackson screenshoot is a 100% solid leaf. I am facing the same problem here. My brush sample is set on 100% opacity, 100% flow default round brush with 100% layer opacity.

 

My new brush preset turns out has opacity in it. I don't turn on any brush settings.

 

Any idea? Thank you.

I found out that the sample image should be in solid black color to make the new brush has default 100% opacity. It this normally work this way?
