Thankyou Ella.
Rich, is the warp tool a 'bolt-on'? The effect I'm trying to achieve/emulate is created by the action of a brush on paths and I'm convinced it's all down to the brush construction, I've made several brush as experiments, near, however not near enough, I've even paused the video, taken a screen-shot zoomed in and (believe it or not) got the magnifying glass up to my monitor to see if I could get a good idea of the Photoshop brush construction but by that stage lost any worthwhile resolution... madness. I do know the same result can be achieved with 1px strokes of the brush, however this is the real artistic part and I need practice. A good brush at around 70% opacity is "normal dust".
Your screen shot is a good attempt, I'm sure you found the trick is in the flow of the brush stroke.

The on-canvas warp tool is part of Gimp 2.9.5 , so you will have to wait for that one ;)
...I've even paused the video, taken a screen-shot zoomed in and (believe it or not) got the magnifying glass up to my monitor to see if I could get a good idea of the Photoshop brush ...
I had a quick look at the video, 25 minutes is too long for me. A fine example of how not to make a tutorial. Black theme, tiny icons, unreadable text.
