Photoshop Tips 3 - Liquid with Chrome Filter

This is a rather simple but fun way to make "liquid" things, text or abstract.

1. We start by making a simple layer and write some text.

Then we run Filter>Artistic>Plastic Wrap Filter. Then we get this( below ).
Duplicate this layer.

3. Newt we run Filter>Sketch>Chrome ( all settings full for this ) andlastly set the layer to Overlay as Blend mode. Done.

Experiment with settings of Plastic Wrap and Chrome. Try on faces or flowers or whatever. Cool things can come out. A couple of dots may look like fairytale gems ( with imagination =) ).

Also use Levels on the Chrome layer to control some of the highlights. That was done to top image.
