    Re: Turn skin into white plastic?

    There is a quick tip for this that i've been using for quite some time.
    1. Import photo in Lightroom (2 or 3)
    2. In Lightroom presets you have Color creative - Cold tone. Apply to your image
    3. Play with Exposure & Fill Light (pay attention only to skin, you need to be carefull not to kill your highlights)
    4. When you satisfied with results then -> Mouse - Right click - Edit in - Open as smart object in Photoshop
    5. In Photoshop - Put your original photo under this exported layer
    6. Mask only the skin (or even hair) from exported photo, depends what you want to achive
    7. Since this layer is exported as Smart object you can double click it, and do some tweaks if necessary, to match color or so.
    7. Retouch skin it to look flawless and with all texture (D&B + Contures)
    8. Perhaps you will need to bring back (or even paint yourself the make-up and do some additional color corection.

    Try this technique and post your results, i'm curious if it's worked out for you

    bye

    Weird... so you're from china. I have read the news, and they said that the comunist government of china have blocked youtube, flickr, hotmail, myspace, yahoo, etc from the people, so you don't have acces to all those sites because the government desition to block all those sites. Are you aware of this?

    Sounds interesting.... Show an example!

    all i did was use a median filter then a dust and scratches filter
    and masked that onto the skin
    then i sort of dodged and burned
    but i used a slightly feathery brush
    and
    the blending mode was changed to vivid light

    i think it looks quite plastic.

    not sure if this is quite what you were after though,
    mine looks slightly matte
    not really highly reflective...

    I tried this with some success (no image to display though since i tried it on a pornopic)

    1.copy face to new layer (I used quickmask)
    2.use screen or lighten as blending mode to set the high key
    3. use face copy to create displacement map
    4. filter/distort/displace a suitable reflection - set to overlay and very low opacity (a matter of taste how vivid you want the reflection)
    5. Create new layer at 50% grey as a D&B layer and create you highlights (size and intensity is up to you depending on what kind of plastic you want)
    6. tweak settings of above layers 'til you find what you like, I added an 8% blue tint layer set to overlay just for the tint and a 16% multiply of carbonfibre texture just for fun.

    Please give feedback if it worked for you

    Well I'm not sure if this is what your after. I used cainam's original image (hope you don't mind).

    It's a combination of noise reduction quite heavy, sharpening quite lightly and masking out everything but the skin, and then Hue and Sat plus levels ALs with Blend mode changed to Linear dodge on the H&S and the opacity lowered.
    This was done quite quickly so the masking here is very rough and could have been better.

    The blur brush was also used, set to 100% and with a hard edge to enable blurring right up to edges with out blurring them. Sharpening was kept to a minimum because if it generated halos they would have to be removed.

    Hope this helps, if not it was fun trying.
