Hello and welcome to PSG.

I think this is just a water texture image that has been maniped with the Liquify filter.

Before...

Hi Sam, thank you very much for your reply. I'll try that. I'm just starting to understand how the filters work.
I need to make a similar stream of water flowing, but using only 3 colors (none of them blue). I'll see what I can do and report back.

In addition to using the liquify filter as iamsam suggests try also adding the "Plastic Wrap" filter (founder the Artistic section of the "Filter Gallery").

You will need to have worked carefully with liquify first to get a decent start image.

Cheers

Thank you, fredfish. Those are excellent filters. I played around with the Plastic Wrap after Liquify and it really helped a lot, I'm definitely using them.
But I'm still not quite there yet.

I need to reduce the number of colors somehow. I tried 'Posterize', but it looked weird. Maybe the image I chose doesn't have enough contrast.
Any suggestions?
