INSTRUCTIONS

Install the brush following the instructions in the readme file.

Open a new image sized 600x600 with a transparent background.

Set your background colour to a colour of your choice, I chose #830F12, and using your preset shape tool set to rectangle, draw a large square in the canvas, leaving some blank area around each side.

Convert this to a raster layer and then duplicate it. Go to Adjust, Hue and Saturation, colourise and change the colour of the duplicate square. X off the top square and highlight the lower square.

Go to effects, Texture Effects and Mosaic Antique and apply the settings below.

Un X and highlight the top square and go to Antique Mosaic and apply the settings below.

Lower the opacity on the upper square to 60% and merge it down. Now go to Effects, Texture effects, soft plastic and apply the settings below.

Add a new raster layer and set your paintbrush to the brush you are using, and apply it onto the new layer. Duplicate the brush layer, and merge it down. Now change the layer properties to darken.

Your image should look like this so far.

Open up your tube, and copy and paste it as a new layer. position the tube how you want it. Then, go to effects, 3D effects, Drop shadow, and apply the settings below.

Now go to Image, Resize, and resize it by 60% making sure all layers IS checked.

Open your font and minimise it to your taskbar. With your background colour set to a colour of your choice and your foreground colour set to null, and using the text tool settings shown below, apply your text.

Convert this to a raster layer and apply the following inner bevel.

Add a new raster layer and add any artist copyrights and your own personal watermark.

Now you can merge all and flatten, and save.
