If you want to give the feature a go yourself, then Snapchat’s 3D Paint is rolling out starting today. You’ll be able to find the feature within the Create section of the iOS app’s AR Bar. Unfortunately, the feature isn’t available on Android at launch, but Snapchat says that it will be coming to the platform in the coming months.
