Decorated Egg in Photoshop

Posted on 7th April 2018
For this tutorial, you will need an image to use as “Background”, one of an egg with a neutral background and some Gold Textures included in this Bundle:

1 - In Photoshop, open the “Egg” image you chose and click “Command/Control + J” to make a Duplicate.

2 - Click “Command/Control + L” and adjust the “Levels”.

3 - Use the “Quick Selection Tool” (W) to select your “Egg” and isolate it from the “Background”. Then, click “Q” to enter “Quick Mask Mode” (your layer’s thumbnail should be red), use the “Eraser Tool” (E) with a “Hardness” of 75% and fix the “Outside Edges”. Use the “Brush Tool” (B) with a similar brush to do the same in the “Inside”.

4 - Click the “Add Layer Mask” button at the bottom of the “Layers” Panel and add a 1.0 px “Feather” in the “Properties” Panel.

5 - Go to the “Adjustments” Panel and create a new “Hue/Saturation Adjustment Layer”. Check the “Colorize” box and play around with the other settings until you get the desired color. Click the “Create Clipping Mask” button at the bottom of the “Properties” Panel to make sure the “Adjustment” will affect your “Egg” Layer only.

6 - Open the Textures you want to apply on top of your “Egg” and bring them into your document.

7 - Use Free “Transform” (Command/Control + T) to resize it, then double-click on top and choose “Warp”. Pull the “Handles” and “Points” in the “Grid” to “Wrap” the “Texture” around the “Egg”. Once you are satisfied click “Enter” or click the small “Checkmark” button in the top menu.

8 - Right-click on top of the thumbnail and choose “Create Clipping Mask”, then double-click on it and apply the following “Layer Styles”:

Drop Shadow:

9 - Duplicate the “Egg” Layer (Command/Control + J) and place it on top of everything, clip it to your other layers and change the “Blending Mode” to “Multiply”. Create a new “Vibrance Adjustment Layer”, clip it to your layers and increase the “Vibrance” to about +65.

10 - Select all your layers but exclude the “Background” one, right-click on top of them and choose “Link Layers”, then click on the small Folder icon at the bottom of the Panel to make a “Group”. Now, you can duplicate the “Group” and change the “Egg” Color and apply a different “Texture”.

11 - Open the “Background” you chose and place your “Eggs” into it. Double click on one of them and apply the following “Layer Styles”:

Drop Shadow:

12 - Right-click on top of the Group’s thumbnail and “Copy Layer Style”, then right-click on your other “Egg” thumbnail and “Paste Layer Style”.

13 - Check out your work:
