Tutorial On How To Paint Convincing Metals

Hi Folks. Can someone here direct me to a tutorial, step by step on how to use the Photoshop airbrush tool to paint gold, silver, platinum, brass, etc. I have been drawing bars and circles and experimenting with different colors, but not having much success yet. It just doesn't reflect correctly or have that punch or the right colors. Any help is appreciated. Thanks again steveb

Hi SteveB2005,

Welcome to RP!

None of the following methods uses the Air Brush Tool, but you could find these Tutorials very useful....

1* How to create Metal-Like Skin

2* How to make a metal-effect

Hope this helps...

Wow Flora,

Have looked previously, but it's amazing what you dont see at times. Both the Dreamypix and Patrick B tuts are great, and with a bit of quick fun using Patrick B's (which seemed more suitable to this task) and a blend of dreamypix's I have achieved this in minutes
