How to Create Patent Leather / Shiny look
Right now I'm working on an image of a purse and the photographer would like me to make some of the regular leather features look like patent leather. After blurring the leather a bit to achieve a smoother surface, I've tried some dodging/burning but it's not looking very realistic.
Any suggestions are appreciated.

Re: How to Create Patent Leather / Shiny look
There are a number of filters in PS that you can use. The 1st one that came to mind was Filter>Artistic>Plastic Wrap. PLEASE NOTE, I spent 5 seconds with the quick select tool - so I did not do a neat selection, and I spent 3 seconds to run the filter. You could make a clean selection, play with the opacity to fine tune the effect. In the 2nd attachment I ran the filter on the trim as well.
