Check out this tutorial using GIMP pipe brushes. It's similar to what you are trying to do. http://www.mahvin.com/2009/12/gimp-tutorial-how-to-make-springs-using.html
Thank you! I had tried that before but in my gimp 2 I don't know where to save the new brush, can't find the exact folder.
username/gimp-2.6/brushes or whichever version of GIMP you might be using. They go in the brushes folder.
Found it, it's in gimp/share/gimp/2.0/brushesBtw, how do I create a new transparent layer? Step 4
Ok, i figured to do everything.When saving it fails:Saving 'C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\brushes\metal.gih' failed:Could not open 'C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\brushes\metal.gih' for writing: Permission denied
Don't save it to C:\Program Files. Save it to your username/gimp/brushes folder.
I did it!!!! Thank you my friend!
