Pracken's Paint Shop Pro Tutorials

Country Farm House Series:
Frying Pan


I decided to make a country farm house and furnish it. Everything you see in the house was created by me.

This tutorial will show you how to make the frying pan (it's hanging on the wall to the right of the fireplace). This one is really simple and quick to do!

There are tutorials for all of the furnishings in this home, and you will find them all here.

Because there are so many items needed to furnish the house, I've tried to make the tutorials relatively easy so you'll be able to get through them all.

For this tutorial, you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro. I used version 7.04 but if you are familiar with PSP, you should be able to convert the tutorial without problems. You can download the latest PSP version demo here.

My selection files. Place these in your PSP selections folder (or any location of your choice). You may download them

Eye Candy 4000 and my Bevel Boss preset. Place this in your Eye Candy Bevel Boss folder.

You may download all of my materials here.

My colors chart. Right click on this and save to your computer.

Step 1. Open a new image 300 x 300, white background.

Step 2. Add a new layer. Load selection 1 (go to selections>load from disk - then navigate to the location you placed your selection files).

Flood fill with color #1. Float the selection (click "Ctrl+F" on your keyboard). Open up Eye Candy>Bevel Boss. Under the settings tab, navigate to the preset you downloaded - you should see it in the list "(pracken_fryingpan").


Step 3. Add a new layer. Load selection 2. Set your foreground color to #1 and your background color to #2. Set your fill style to gradient. Navigate to the "#1 Foreground-Background" gradient, sunburst. Use the settings in the screenshot and flood fill your selection.

Step 4. Apply Eye Candy>Bevel Boss filter, using the same settings as before.


And that's it. When you're satisfied with your creation, delete the color chart, hide the background layer, and then merge visible layers. Save as a transparent psp file. It's ready to add to your farmhouse.
