Or ‘minify’ your PaintLab to be as tiny as a ladybug! Use different PaintLab sculpt types. Just select another brush and sculpt type in the menu on your right or left controller and create whatever you like, such as camouflaged dinosaurs, flying bees, rainbows, a castle, Superman or a lion!
Review: At the end of the day, PaintLab and all the other Vr painting/creative programs are only as good as the person’s creativity holding the motion controllers. For a free tool, you really can’t moan at this app. It has all you need to make something amazing and show off to people, but the controls are not the easiest. The good news is if you get past those and you can let your creative juices flow. Just be aware that there are many other, much better painting and design programs for our VR headsets, but for a freebie, this is worth checking out even if you don’t like the look of it. It does what you expect it to do and very little else, so just give it a chance.
