We are proposing a new system to enhance the tactile experience of digital painting hat includes multi-strokes for different painting needs. In this paper, we describe how FlexStroke is used as a Chinese brush, an oil brush, and a crayon by changing the jamming tip. This tip has different levels of stiffness based on its jamming structure. Visual simulations on PixelSense jointly enhance the intuitive painting process with realistic display results.
