Yes that is the book, Glitter Guru. I don't have the book but think I'll get it. The link I gave gives the complete content of the chapter. You can learn a lot from it. It is what I used to base my hair mods.

Hold down alt and bring up channel mixer adjustment layer (check ”group with previous window”, now move sliders till you have metallic effect.
Ok- you lost me here. Hold down ALT + the Create New Fill or Adjustment Layer > Channel Mixer on the Layers Pallete while the "Unsharp Mask" Layer is selected?
When I do this I get a popup that says "New Layer" and the option it gives me is to "Use Previous Layer to Create Clipping Mask"
I'm using CS 2, if that helps any.
If I do this I get a Red Green and Blue Channel with the Output Channel Being Red.
What are good values to achieve the metallic look?

Set mode to overlay.
Ok.. so this is what I have so far... I just have racoon eyes! LOL
What am I doing wrong?

Yeah that book is on the top of my 'go get' list. It's pretty incredible! I've seen it used at Amazon lately. Good deal!

Metallic Lips & Eyes

Cyber Cat!

Yeah! Thanks for explaining with those screen shots. I think I'm getting it now.
In fact, I found another digital eye shadow tutorial and layered the results of that one under the technique you gave me and I also used the metallic technique for the lips, and ended up with this result...

Thank you so much for explaining it to me!

PS... thanks to Phil and Zoe for such a wonderful picture to practice this technique on! The eyelids and lips were perfect for practicing this technique.

all this talk of metal eyes and large lips inspired a joke in me, but the more i worked on it, the more i decided to curtail the joke and alter it into ... something.

my apologies to zoe if it offends, i mean no offense to such a beautiful woman.
