This versatile digital art software makes it easy to experiment with a variety of noise styles and applications. In this tutorial, we'll walk you through the steps to create, customize, and apply white noise in Clip Studio Paint.

Step 1: Create a new layer
Begin by creating a new layer above your existing artwork or background. This will allow you to work on the white noise effect without altering your original image.

Step 2: Select the Airbrush tool
From the toolbar on the left, select the Airbrush tool. In the Sub Tool palette, choose the Spray option. This tool sprays particles, making it ideal for creating a noise effect.

Step 3: Customize your brush settings
With the Spray brush selected, open the Tool Property palette to customize the brush settings. Modify the brush size, density, and particle size to your preference. For white noise, consider a smaller particle size and higher density.

Step 4: Choose a white color
In the Color palette, select a pure white color or a very light gray, depending on the intensity of the noise effect you want to create.

Step 5: Apply the noise effect
With your settings adjusted, begin to paint your white noise over your new layer. Work in short, rapid strokes to build up the desired noise texture. Remember that you can always undo or erase if needed.

Step 6: Adjust the layer opacity
Once you're satisfied with the white noise effect, adjust the layer opacity to control the visibility and intensity of the effect. Lower the opacity for a more subtle noise texture or increase it for a stronger effect.

Step 7: Merge layers (optional)
If you're happy with the final result and wish to merge the white noise layer with your original artwork, simply right-click the noise layer and select Merge Layers. Keep in mind this action is irreversible, so it's a good idea to save a backup copy before merging.

And that's it! By following these simple steps, you can create an impressive white noise effect using Clip Studio Paint. Happy painting!
