The Mixer Brush

In Photoshop you can create heavily customized brushes, but there's one limit to them—they must be saved in grayscale. It's because the program converts various shades of gray to various shades of transparency. But what if you don't care about transparency? What if you want to paint with fully colored... strawberries? It is actually possible!

Note: the trick requires Photoshop in version CS5 or higher.
