Colorizing

I'm colorizing an old black and white photo. Any suggestions on how to do wire rimmed glasses? How to you make the wires look gold?

Re: Colorizing

Try color #b18e4e. Then D&B for the shine.

Hope it helps,

Re: Colorizing

I was unsure if you would need more info as to how to... But for others less experienced, here it is...
  1. Make a new layer
  2. Re-name appropriately
  3. Set layer blending mode to color
  4. Set the brush color to #b18e4e
  5. Paint with a 25% opacity, med soft brush

Below is a picture I did for the November 2008 Contest - Colorization. It’s something you can practice on.

Re: Colorizing

Overlay mode works nicely for shiny objects.
