Paper Marbling Technique?

Just because I think it can't be replicated in Photoshop:

Let's see how far the group can come to adapting this technique to Photoshop.

Re: Paper Marbling Technique?

no freakin way! holy sh*t! when he put that paper down i went 'noooo... he couldnt!' and not only did he, but he even enhanced it further. i was so amazed i kept looking for a magician's trick! that was just too cool!

but, it didnt look like normal water. it seemed too viscous.

Re: Paper Marbling Technique?

Alright now, this is just a start. I see things that need changing already, like, no drop shadow no matter HOW light, but...
I used pieces of custom shapes, warped them to near death, and used at least 5 layers for backgrounds. Tried the liquify filter with no luck.

I think the gentleman in the video could always get a job in an espresso cafe doing the little squiggles on the top layer of foam.

Thanks Doug!

When I have a little more time I will definitely take you up on your challenge. I love trying to replicate traditional paints and materials in photoshop

Re: Paper Marbling Technique?

I thought I had done everything right ... BUT.. when I put the paper on my monitor,smoothed it down, then removed it.... nothing happened.. NO transfer!!! What did I do wrong?
Is there a special type of transfer paper?

Looks like a tutorial from Veronica, Bert Monroy or Steve Caplin might be in order for this one...

Now how cool is that. Played around with iWarp tool (equivalent to PS's Liquefy, but Liquefy is better) but still required more work then a filter guy with no Wacom can handle. Do like your play results Veronica.

LOL

Mine isn't even close but is still the perfect background for a birthday card I'm making for a 12 year old.

I drew for circles and merged them. Made a few copies and liquified them and layered them with 'soft light' blending mode. And I can say without a doubt that this is definitely NOT the way to do it in Photoshop

Re: Paper Marbling Technique?

Ol'B, you are just a hoot. Keep it up, you're great. And to you & Lyle, thanks for your comments. Now look what you've done, you've created a monster! Played a lot today & I usually don't have the time in a normal day so made it extra fun. (what's 'normal' anyway?)

I kept trying to make the paper background more... something.

Re: Paper Marbling Technique?

oh, here's my stab at it. I made the background.. colored it then made a gridwork of white lines..then just smudged it around;
second layer I just layed colored circles over each other and dragged the smudge brush through it. I played with the smudge settings to get the drag the way I wanted it.
