Hi All

Just wondering if there's an effect or brush effect that allows one to use a metallic painting effect. Have done a search on youtube to no avail. Any ideas/suggestions/advice?

Obviously there is a huge range of different metallic paint effects - for example, gold, chrome, brushed steel and even rust!

Without knowing exactly what type of effect you are after this can only be general - but try this search on google.

And you should have plenty to feed the creative juices.

You could also investigate theses layer styles which may also help.

Those are some good ideas, fred

I find with metal it's more to do with the reflections coming from it that the colour itself. a colour can usually just be added at the end
