ABOUT:	

	
I was working on campaign buttons (clip art, not specific candidate..)
and did not have any good stars that were small and crisp enough to use.
I needed white and black, but tweakeed out a few other colors just in case;
they are 64 pixels -- although it seems a bit large for most uses,  
brushes scale down much better than they scale up.

I post these, any updates, as well as other brushes and updated and modified 
Script-FUs at gimphelp.org. All brushes are also included (in png format) 
at wpclipart.com, the Public Domain clipart site.

Enjoy.

ADDITIONAL TIP re: When using very small brushes:

You may find jagged edges, even when brushing porperly. This will likely be due to mouse movement. To stop this, zoom in the image to make what you are putting in very large. You can also hold the mouse securely with one hand and gently tap the left mouse button. (This eliminates any mouse movement.)
