Adding new texture/brush/paper to SAI by mzclark Adding new texture/brush/paper to SAI by mzclark
**Not all brush, texture, paper texture are compatible with all Sai types**

Here is how I add new brushes, paper and texture to Sai. Your files will look slightly different. My brushes, paper, textures are from DA artists which can be found in my favorites folder.
If your files are zipped, unzip them. Not all computers have an un-zip program so the download may ask you to install the un-zip wizard first.
Copy the downloaded files to Sai. It is better have copies in case you have to uninstall Sai.
Make sure to copy files to the correct folder.

For the last step, this green Sai application showed up when I either installed Sai or when i installed a new brush. I added a new brush today as I did this tutorial and the new brush would not show up when I launched my normal Sai application (the green/blue one). However, when you launch the green Sai application it installed the new brushes and now my original green/blue Sai app has the new brushes.
I do not know if your own Sai program folder will have the green Sai. If you do not have it and your brush will install w/o it please let me know.
Also, i have been seeing brush.config come with brushes files. that file goes into the general Sai folder.

I learned from this member: toadsdontexist.deviantart.com/…

My "start ai" app came from this DA member when I got their textures and brush toadsdontexist.deviantart.com/…. Also, depending on what Sai version you have "Start Sai" may not work. Sorry that's all I know.
Here is another tutorial from the same DA member that helped me. Try downloading one of their brushes/textures and see if you are able to get the sai app:

Im sorry I am a bit confused. Are you asking where to find the Sai file folders or how to put the textures onto your computer (from a download)? Can you show me the link you have?

wow confusing site!! :/
it looks like you have to download them individually or as a zip file. but to use a zip file you need a program that can open the zip file. Also, there are 26 texture files. 1st page has 18 textures and the 2nd page has 8. The "download as zip" option is at the very bottom of the page on each page.
When you download the files make sure everything goes to your download folder so it's easier to keep track of which ones you downloaded already, once your done downloading, move the files like my tutorial shows.
I use WinZip to open zip files, but that's a whole nother tutorial. Ask the owner of the textures for help with that.
