Pracken's Paint Shop Pro Tutorials

Teapot

This is a very quick and easy tutorial for making a teapot.


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.

Eye Candy 4000

My Eye Candy glass presets. Place these in your Eye Candy glass folder.

My fill pattern.

My selection files. Place these in your PSP selections folder, or another location of your choice.

You may download all of my materials here.


Step 1. Open a new image 400 x 325, background color of your choice.

Step 2. Add a new layer.  Load selection 1 (go to selections>load from disk - then navigate to the location where you placed my selection files).  Flood fill with #DBB9C2.  Apply Eye Candy glass "001teapot" preset.

Step 3. Add a new layer.  Load selection 2.  Flood fill with green #AFB397.  Apply Eye Candy glass and use "002teapot" preset.

Step 4. Add a new layer.  Load selection 3.  Open up the teapot fill pattern you downloaded.  Change your foreground to pattern and navigate to the tile you opened.  Change the size to 50%.  Apply the kaleidoscope filter (go to effects>reflection>kaledioscope), using the following settings.

Step 5. Apply Eye Candy glass filter and use the "002" preset.  Change the glass color to #DBB9C2.

Step 6. Add a new layer.  Open selection 4.  Flood fill with #DBB9C2.  Apply Eye Candy glass, preset  002.

Step 7. Open selection 5.  Flood fill with  #DBB9C2.  Apply Eye Candy glass, preset 002.

Step 8. Add a new layer.  Open selection 6.  Flood fill with #DBB9C2.  Apply Eye Candy glass, preset 002.

Step 9. Add a new layer.  Open selection 7.  Flood fill with #AFB397.  Apply Eye Candy glass preset 002.  Change the bevel width to about 5.

Step 10. With your magic wand, click inside the area at the top to select it.  Expand by 2.

Step 11. Add a new layer.  Flood fill with a darker color (I used #71745A).  Move this layer underneath the spout.  Keep selected.

Step 12. Apply a cutout (go to effects>3d effects>cutout), and use the following settings.

 

And that's it! All finished!! Hope you enjoyed the tut.


5/27/04 Note: I have made a country cupboard tutorial, along with items to place on it. This teapot is one of those items.

The cupboard, along with all of the items on it can be found on page 5 of my tutorials here.

For the cupboard, I just made another color variation of this teapot (see it on the cupboard above). To do that, just use your color>adjust>hue/saturation/brightness feature in psp - just play with the settings until you find something you like.
