I hope you
will enjoy creating this little blue glass mister to add to your
tube collection. I thought it would
be a nice addition to those
floral scenes we love to create so I had to try to create it in
Pro 7, the 30 day trial version

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!
