One really cool font design at the moment is a combination stencil-effect and paint-effect. Gasmask is one of those free fonts that has the interesting combination. It is designed by Billy Argel. It's primarily in all capital letters, with just a small number of characters.
Rick Mueller's Wet Paint font is another cool paint effect type. The font appears like dripping paint. It is also available in all capital letters. And, it also comes with numbers and several symbols, including brackets, copyright, and different punctuation marks.
This free paint effect font called Paint Peel Initials appear like the way it's called - peeling or scraped paint. It is available in all capital letters only, plus the exclamation point. So, it might have some limits if you need numbers and other characters.
