*Terms Of Use*

Let's get started! =)

1. Open a 400 x 400 transparent image. Go to Selections, Load from Disk and choose the glass bottom_gh.sel and flood fill with #000080. You can name this layer glass bottom. Deselect and save your work.


2. Add a new raster layer. Name it tubing. Go to Selections, Load from Disk and select tubing_gh.sel. Flood fill this with white. Now go to Effects, Plugins, Flaming Pear, Super Blade Pro and locate your copper mister_gh and apply this to your tubing. It looks like a cactus, I know! =) I used my copper mister preset in Super Blade Pro for this and the sprayer, but feel free to use any effect you like. Deselect.


3. Add a new raster layer. Name it Glass. Go to Selections, Load from Disk and select blue glass_gh.sel. Flood fill your selection with #000080. Go to Effects, Plugins, Eye Candy 4000, Glass and locate the blue mister_gh preset and apply it to your glass. Go to your layer palette and lower the opacity of your Glass layer to 55. Deselect and save.


4. Add a new raster layer and call it Sprayer. Go to Selections, Load from Disk and select the sprayer top_gh.sel. Flood fill the selection with white. Now go to Effects, Plugins, Flaming Pear, Super Blade Pro and apply your copper mister_gh preset or whatever effect you have chosen to use. Deselect and save.


5. Now you will see a little bright green line at the bottom of the sprayer the needs to be removed. You will want to Zoom in for this step. Using your freehand selection tool, set to Point to Point, Feather: 0, Anitalias: checked, make a rectangular selection, see below. Make sure your horizontal selection lines are completely straight at the top of the selection you make. Then hit your delete key to remove this selection. Deselect.


To finish up, go to Layers, Merge, Merge Visible. Now to save it as a tube go to Edit: Copy, then to Edit: Paste: as New Image. There you have your new Blue Glass plant mister tube!
