Kalidescope

here is my first attempt at creating a kalidescope from a snapshot. Still working out the bugs on my angles.

That is beautiful!

I was just in a local scrapbooking shop the other day and saw some kalidescopes that people had made. It started me wondering about doing them in Photoshop.

Care to share how you made this one?

First, you need some hi-tech equipment.......

thank you for your kind comments.


The HI-TECH equipment I used was a coffee filter and two paper clips. I folded the filter into 1/8s. Next I cut out one of the wedges created and used it as a template paper clipped over my photo. Then I just 'extracted' the wedge....and flipped it to make a mirror image.

then it was just a matter of copy and paste on to new image. Each wedge had to be rotated then placed in the proper position.

here's a pic of my hi-tech equipment.

there is probably an "official" way to make this in PS, but my skills are pretty limited. Hopefully they'll improve after I take a class next month.

That's it???? I would have thought you were using a special program or fancy filters in Photoshop to create that. That is soo cool. Thanks for sharing it with us. I love the way they turn out. Can't wait to try it myself.

Even if you don't drink coffee, you should just be able to make a circle from a small plate or something, fold as directed, cut out the section and scan with virtually the same results...

I think the neatest thing about it is that it's completely LOW tech... What a hoot! I would never have guessed!

Nope - I'm determined to go high tech all the way!!! (Though usually when I don't have a clue what I'm doing, it's pretty much brute force - so probably not worth a tutorial. )
