Today’s layer is #4 and consists of two images. One is the color paint layer and the other is how I have used the colored paint layer.
To start, I created a yellow/gold layer based on colors contained within the original design layer. I use the rectangle tool in Photoshop to create a layer. Then I make the layer a specific color using the color picker tool and choosing from my design. This way I keep all of the colors in my final picture compatible with each other.
After I have chosen the color I use a Snap Art filter to make the solid color more of a brushstroked color. I use short brush strokes, lots of color variations and lots of saturation and contrast. This makes a nice textured pattern that has some awesome color variations. Again they are all the same color tones as the original design.
