Colourful Swirl 109

We’re going to make a colourful and good looking swirl with only a few steps!

1. Start out by creating a 800*600 document. Now go to (filter – render – clouds) so you end up with something like this.

3. Add another filter (filter – blur – radial blur) and use the following settings, do this twice! In the second screenshot you can see the outcome of this third step!

5. It looks boring right now but you have to duplicate the layer (layer – duplicate layer) and then change the blending mode to lighten! After that add a twirl (filter – disort – twirl) with an angle of -180…

6. Now it’s just time to colorize those 2 layers! So go to (image – adjustments – hue/saturation) and make sure you check the colorize box! Use the following 2 screenshots as a reference for the 2 layers! But you can always select other colors you like more!

    If the colour isn’t right just add a “curves adjustment” and bring down the curve.
