PaintTool SAI Brushes and Textures

Here are the supposedly default SAI textures for you to download. I say “supposedly” because I bought SAI 1.1.0 from Systemax itself and some were missing but everyone else seem to have them included.

Please don’t hotlink to these files, link to this page instead. Thank you.


Download all blotmap in a zip file. Unzip them inside your blotmap folder.

  1. Hey!
    Well thanks for the textures :3

    Just a little problem: It doesnt allow me to download the config files. It says Im not allowed to do it. Can you help me please?

  2. Hey, I have the .bmp file set up in the correct brush texture folder but they don’t show up on my SAI. Did I miss a step?

  3. I’ve done everything and placed them in the correct folder and it still doesn’t work. Iv’e been wanting these for a long time cause everyone else I know has them but no matter what I do it simply doesn’t work. Help would be lovely. Thank you so much!

    • Mak, can you try removing items from your list and see if that works? That way we can discard your modifying the right files.

    • Hi, you’ll have to edit your brushtext.conf file in a Notepad program and manually add the missing textures on a new line, ie if you’re missing ‘Dirt 03’ you’ll have to add a new line that says [ 1,brushtex\Dirt 03.bmp ] (minus the brackets). Good luck!

  4. You are amazing! Thank you so much for explaining so clearly what to do and linking the zip files. Thank you so much. Thank you!

  5. Thank you so much, i was bought me the full version of paint tool sai today and i was a little sad to find i didn’t have the “default” brushes other people had. This website really helped me and saved me a lot of time and frustration. Will share with friends.

  6. Does anyone know where I can find the blotmap “Chalk”? I cannot find it anywhere :l
    P.S. I *think* it’s a blotmap; it’s in the same category as the (simple circle) and Acrylic and Noise 1, etc.


  7. Uhh…how do I hotlink it to this page? Also, how do I unzip the files in the desired folders such as blotmap. brushtex or elemap? It doesn’t work somehow, I don’t know. I’m not that good at tech T-T

    • Rille: It’s not too complicated but explaining it would be long and out of the scope of this page, sorry. Surely if you ask your friends you’ll find someone to help you out.

  8. Omg I have been looking for some of these textures for over a year now. I am so relieved to finally have them! I can’t thank you enough. You’ve just helped me improve my art. <3

  9. Recently purchased SAI myself, thanks for sharing these awesome brushes. Purchased Version 1.2.5 and it didn’t come with these brushes at default. Again, thanks for sharing!!

  10. I have been trying to get my brushtex files to show up on sai. I was able to get the blotmap and elemap both put in properly and they are showing up on sai. I have put in the proper programming for the brushtex files, saved the programming, and closed and reopened sai multiple times with no luck. I have also re-downloaded the files multiple times (an completed the extract), and re-imputed the program text still all with no luck. If anyone has any trouble shooting Ideas for me to try please let me know! Please be patient with me, I am not a computer genius and can only really manage basic stuff, I might just be missing a really simple step. :) I am using sai 1.1.0, and Windows 10 .

    Thank you!!!!

    • I was right, stupid mistake. I forgot the spaces on some of the item names and they weren’t connecting to the file names properly haha I’m dumb sometimes. lol Thank you for all of these though!!!
