I posted the result of an art history brush experiment a while back and had a request to see it in action. Here's the screencast, using the art history brush and the history brush to create custom distressed text for things like titles.

My steps:
1. Type out the text
2. Rasterize text layer
3. Merge layer with the color layer below it
4. Indicate in the history panel that your current step is the state you'd like the history brush to refer to (click little box on left)

Now select the Art History brush (beneath the History brush in the tools) (letter Y on the keyboard)
and start scrubbing out your lettering, then switch to the History brush
to bring back clarity where you want it. Keep working back and forth
between the two brushes to reveal and conceal parts of your text.

Keep in mind: there are MULTIPLE styles of Art History brush to choose from
at the top. You might use one type for your initial pass, bring back
some undistorted pixels with the History brush (shift-Y), then go for another pass
with a different style Art History brush. (shift-Y again to toggle)

Also: you can choose
between ALL YOUR BRUSH TIPS for this function. A hard-edged brush and a misty soft brush will give you much different effects.

The other layers in the demo were applied with blend modes "screen" and "hard light"  to create depth.
