I wish to create an effect like this one :
Photoshop dripping paint :
Open your image, or a new one, I will show you the basic of the effect, and you will test it with what you want, You will see that it works with every kind of image -photo, brush stroke, etc,,, – it just needs a little exercise, After a short while, you will manage it like the « dripping queens »,
For my first step here, I play with brushes, as if it is a spray bomb (just for the example),
Filter > Liquify
Choose the first tool (FORWARD WRAP TOOL) or shortkey [W ]
and play with the image to create a drip,
When you think the size of your drip is ok, choose the BLOAT tool (5th icon tool or key [B]) and clic and stay on the bottom of your drip to round the end,
You could make several drips, just try to imagine how the wet painting must react in « real » life,
Play with size options to obtain the result of what you had in mind.
You could also pick the color of the spot you want to drip and paint slightly on a new layer and only apply LIQUIFY on this layer, to avoid modifying the original image.
Here is what I do with this technique :
