Adjusting the angle

Do not alter the roundness as it is not an appropriate adjustment when creating stencil art. However, go ahead and drag the arrow in the diagram to adjust the angle, you can see the result of the adjustments immediately in the stroke preview below. You can also enter a numeric value, however, dragging has a more intuitive feel to it.

However, if you want to keep your files editable, it is always a good idea to work on separate layers. So, create a new layer and ensure that it is targeted.

Adjust the size and angle each time and then simply click once on your new layer to add another instance of your stencil art. Repeat this process until you're satisfied with the result. Once you've added your custom brushes to the list of presets, you can use them in any file you like.
