It's quite easy to change the value in the code, browse to:

    | brushMap |
    "PaintBoxMorph initialize"
    currentColor := Color blue.
    self brush: #brush3:.
    brushMap := Dictionary new.
    brushMap at: #brush1: put: 3. "<- Change the brush size here, then 
doIt: PaintBoxMorph initialize"
    brushMap at: #brush2: put: 7.
    brushMap at: #brush3: put: 13.
    brushMap at: #brush4: put: 26.
    brushMap at: #brush5: put: 50.
    brushMap at: #brush6: put: 80.
        keysAndValuesDo: [:key :value | (self submorphNamed: key) arguments
                at: 3
                put: (Form dotOfSize: value)]
