Hot Stuff 2

3 tubes of choice from the same artist - the tubes I am using are from Jose Cano and may be purchased from MPT
Mask - I am using Butterfly Mask 32 here
Plugins - Eye Candy gradient glow, xero porcelain
OK - No scraps again for this
Open a new image in PSP 600x600 floodfill white
Using your preset shape tool set on rectangle, foreground nul, background black
draw out a rectangle like mine above, convert to raster layer
duplicate twice and move into position placing each one slightly lower than the previous one
select the first rectangle, select all, float, defloat - copy your first tube and paste as a new layer
resize if necessary and position within the rectangle, invert and delete, select none
lower the opacity to around 55 and apply xero porcelain at default settings
repeat this step with the other 2 rectangles
now click on the rectangle layers and apply a gradient glow using a colour from your tube
I used red and applied a gradient glow to the 2 outside rectangles only
Using the filmstrip font, foreground & background both black, type the word 'HOT'
position at bottom of first rectangle and duplicate twice, move them into position as above
now apply a gradient glow using the same colour you used previously
I applied a pink glow to the middle one to match the tube
using the prairie dog font, foregound nul, background the colour from your gradient glow - type the word 'Stuff' and apply a black gradient glow - position on the tag beside the words
hide background layer & merge visible all layers
resize and crop
unhide background & add a new raster layer above it
floodfill black, apply mask, delete & merge group
add a new raster layer and floodfill with the colour you used for your glow
apply mask again, delete, merge group and resize by 95%
add your name & copyright info
delete background layer & save as a Png!
