Woman engraved in stone
Tutorials Photo Effects 16831 July 18th, 2018

Today I will show you how to transform a photo of a woman into a stone engraved image. I will blend the woman with the stone wall from the background. It is really easy to do.

Step 1 - Find the photo

When I start looking for a photo I was thinking of a woman with her hair covered, young and beautiful. Her skin color didn't matter because it will be transformed into a Stone Engraved Saint.

So I've found this photo on Flickr .

As you can see it has a stone wall behind it so it is perfect. I don't really like her tooth and the thing is holding in her hand. So lets fix that.


Step 2 - Hide the object from her hand

When you want to hide things a very used method is Spot Healing Brush Tool. But I will use Smudge Tool and than if it is necessary Spot Healing Brush.


First I need to magnify the area that I am going to fix. Go to View - Zoom in.

As you can se I've used both tool s to see the difference, so I decided to use Smudge Tool.

Set the size of the brush to 4, mode normal and strength 100%.

I have to be careful t

- smudge in the direction of the cloth wrinkles

- to follow the light direction

- to smudge from two directions; if  the direction is horizontal smudge from the left and than from the right .and meet in the middle.

For what we are going to do this step is not very important because we will have very little details in the end; but it is nice to know how do fix this kind of problems.

Step 3 - Hide the tooth

Use liquify for this problem. Go to Filter - Liquify . Pick Pucker Tool.

Set this tool options. I advise you not to zoom in the photo because when you zoom out you can realize that the result is not the wanted one.

So place the center of the tool on the tooth area and click repeatedly until the tooth are vanished.

Move to the right and do the same.

Step 4 - Desaturate the photo

For get a little closer to the stone look I need to make the photo black and white.

Go to Image - Adjustments - Desaturate. Call this layer Black and White.
