Chocolate Tablet Effect
Tutorials Textures and Patterns 27842 Views September 5th, 2010

Helo, In this tutorial I will make a nice chocolate effect turning a girl into a dark chocolate figurine. I will also engrave a text into the chocolate. Have fun and let's start!


Part 2

Step 7 - Work with the Hair Shapes

I will now select all the above shapes and choose merge layers. Call this new layer Hair Shapes. Now with the Rectangular Marquee Tool select the part of the shapes that exceed the image. Press SHIFT to make multiple selections than delete the selected part:

Step 8 - Add extra color effect to the hair

The hard part with this tutorial is the color part�the fact that we've use a desaturated image and a vector shape with no gradient what so ever make this color difference betwwen the two parts. I will try to fix that. So create a new layer and press CTRL and click the Thumbnail of the Hair Layer. You will see that a selection of this layer was made. Now simply take the Paint Bucket Tool and in the new layer fill the selection with color # 171717. Go to Filter - Render - Fibers and make the following settings; make sure that the background color is # 242323 and the foreground color is # 171717.

Set the Blending Mode of this layer to Soft Light 100%.

Step 9 - Add Chocolate Effect

You can leave the chocolate as it is or you can add another effect that will give depth and light to our figurine. For that I have used one of photoshop effects - Plastic Wrap.

For that I have create a new layer. Call this layer Chocolate Image. Now Go to Image - Apply Image.

The result is a new image that contains all the visible layers in one image. It is like a printscreen of the image or like a jpg image of your file.

Ok, now go to Filter - Artistic -Plastic Wrap and make the following settings:

You can of course at any time change the settings if you find a better way to make this chocolate effect.

The result should look like that:

If you want a darker color it is enough to duplicate this layer and change the blending mode of this new layer from Normal to Multiply 70%. I did just that and look the result:

Step 10 - Add Further Details

As you can see in the image below I have added two shapes to the initial image with the Pen Tool. Choose the color for this shapes #6a3523. For the vertical shape I have added an extra effect Gradient Overlay with the settings presented below:
