Another cool feature in Blender 2.83 is the new Cloth Brush
Physics simulation under your brush. Sculpt realistic wrinkles with the new Cloth Brush. Its built-in physics solver automatically creates natural-looking folds.
The mass and the damping properties of the simulation are settings of the brush. Two additional controllers limit the influence and falloff of the simulation.
Masked vertices act as pinned during the simulation, and the gravity is applied directly in the solver.
This brush includesseven deformation modes with radial and plane falloff types.
