Metallic look

Hi I am trying making a metallic look on photo. What do you think? The shot are base on clamshell light setup using two soft box, no make up shimmering are use in this shot just some light work on the eyes to gave depth. The metallic look heavily rely on photoshop curve and solarize using various dodge and burn here and there.

Looks good to me! only on her right of the face sit a colour stroke thats not grey - not grey like the rest of the face and on the left a little-> see marked image. pretty photo also,

you can also create a metallic look with this:
make a Channel Mixer adjustment layer, you have to make sure that you check the Monochrome check box (see lower left corner of the dialog) set now Red: -174 Green: +200 Blue:+ 144. and thats it! of course you can make it to you're own this are just standard values.

Re: Metallic look

This may sound daft, but it might actually be easier, to put some silver make-up on the model. If you use enough powder after that, the reflections shouldn't be too bad and it'll look more natural.
