Fading in and out
Bare with me, as I'm pretty bad at gimp. I hope this has a simple solution, but I've searched for days on this, and have found nothing.

I'm trying to use brushes in gimp, but I've found that the brushes fade in and out as I move them around the canvas.

I've tried turning off brush dynamics, but this seems to have not had any effect.

I am painting the brushes down with the paint brush, as I want the anti aliasing effect this gives, but no matter what I do, it has this "fuzzying" of the brush, however this only happens in certain areas of the image.

I'm also using a mouse.

I'm using gimp 2.8.6, and I believe its the 64bit version from here:

As I have no idea how to embed images, i'll add an example as an attachment.

Thanks for any help.

RE: Fading in and out
The natural size for that brush is 64, due to scaling some sizes work better than others
25 for example is not too good, and 80 is a little blurred.

To get the best out of it, I would check that the brush spacing is not set too low - not in your screenshot it is the slider under the brushes dialog. Have a large value say, 200.

The other thing, best not use as a (click-n-drag) brush, use it as a stamp just click at every location.

I pulled that brush out of the abr if you want to see if a single brush works any better. Unzip and pop into your brushes folder.
