      Hello, Annamaria:

      Welcome and thanks for sharing your thoughts.

      By "undefinedUNDEFINEDundefined" did you mean you were unable to click the link in the post and get to the tutorial? Worked fine for me just now, but who knows.

      RE: You haven't gotten the best results.
      Well, that happens. Not all techniques work on all photos. Fact is watercolor is very difficult to achieve using Photoshop.

      If you are into PS actions, the Watercolor action Mike Finn offers at his site sometimes works great on some images. http://homepages.slingshot.co.nz/~mikefinn/action.html

      Thanks agai for sharing your thoughts and giving this tutorial a go. Keep experimenting.

        On this one I used a combination of methods:
        1. I made a copy of the image and used this tutorial as a basis. Note: I used a 36 px chalk brush, blend mode lighten and opacity of ~25%. I duplicated and flattened the final result.

        2. I made another copy of the image and applied Mike Finn's Watercolor action (see previous post for link). Flattened this version, too.

        3. Using the Image > Apply Image command, I combined these images (blend mode, Hard Light) at about 80% opacity.

        4. Added a layer for the stroke frame.

        Note: The final outcome is highly dependent on the Art History Brush (first) image.
