Welcome & Disclaimer

Hello & welcome to SuthrnPrincess Tuts. I am so excited that you stopped in to see what I have made with the gorgeous tubes and fabby kits that are out there. You will find FTU & PTU kits as well as FTU & PTU Tubes are used in my tutorials. If you run into a problem on a tut please feel free to email me and I will help if I can. My use of a FTU tube does not give you permission to use it. I have obtained permission either from the artist themselves or through a group to use their artwork. You need to personally contact them to obtain permission before using.

**Disclaimer**

The tuts contained within this blog are my own creation. They came from my brain and were created by my own hand. Any resemblance to the works of others is completely coincidental.

postheadericon Hardcore 2 piece set





Supplies:
Tube of choice. I used the awesome work of Leigh Young available at My Tubed Art.
PlugIns: MuRa's Meister- Copies, Xero- Porcelain
Fonts of choice: I used Bauhaus 93 and Aero Matics Stencil.



Let's Get started:

Banner:

Open a new 700 width by 300 height image.
Paste tube of chice and position as desired.
Duplicate the tube and hide the top tube layer.
Select your flood fill tool and fill a separate raster layer with a color of choice from the tube. I used one of the blues in her eyeshadow (color #13479f).
Select the visible tube layer.
Effects> PlugIns> MuRa's Meister> Copies: Shift Mode- Random, Tile Mode- Wraparound, Blend Mode- Normal, Number- 150, Shift X- 100, Shift Y- 0, Angle- 0, Rotation- 0, Attenuation- 0, Scale- 100, Thru BG Range- 0, Fade Out- 0.
Effects> PlugIns> Xero> Porcelain: Softness- 128, Strength- 128, Brightness- 128, Red Channel- 0, Green Channel- 0, Blue Channel- 255.
Repeat Porcelain again.
Duplicate the layer and change the duplicates Blend Mode to Luminance.

Change the Blend Mode of the two merged to Luminance. Merge Visible.
Unhide Single tube layer.
Select the tube layer. Selections> Select All. Selections> Float. Selections> Defloat. Selections> Modify> Expandy by 3.
Right click on the tube layer and select to Create a New Raster Layer.

Effects> 3D Effects> Drop Shadow: Vertical- 2, Horizontal 2, Opacity 65%, Blur 5, Color Black.
With a font of choice add the wording you would like across the bottom. I used the word "Hardcore". The font that I used is called Bauhaus 93 sized at 30 with bold selected and used the same color blue as I had been using for the other steps. I suggest using the same color as your background or a color from your tube so that it matches.
