Egg Votive Cups

This tutorial was written using PSP 7.02 but should be able to be done in PSP6 with a few adjustments.
This tutorial uses selections and a flame psp file (included) .
We will be making one candle here.

You will need:

Jasc's PaintShop Pro-Get it HERE
My zip files-Get them HERE
Unzip to the selections and the flame into a folder of your choice.


Open a New Image.
200 x 300 16 million colors - transparent

Step 1
Go to Layers/New Raster Layer name it bottom
Go to Selections/Load from Disk and load candlebottom.sel
Change foreground color to #B5B7FD and background color to #D8D9FA.
Now change foreground to gradient
Flood fill gradient Foreground-background

Step 2

Invert selection
Go to Effects/3D/Drop Shadow and use these settings.


Keep Selected

Step 3
Apply Drop shadow again but change the Horizontal to -6
Deselect

Step 4
Take your selection tool set to rectangular and select just the very bottom of the cup and hit the delete button to make a flat bottom.
Deselect

Step 5
Go to Layers/New Raster Layer name it top.
Go to Selections/ Load from disk and select candletop.sel
Invert the gradient and flood fill

Step 6
Invert the selection
Go to Effects/3D/Drop Shadow and use these settings.

Deselect

Step 7
Go to Layers/New Raster Layer name it back
Go to Selections/Load from disk and select candleback.sel
Flood fill with the dark color #B5B7FD

Step 8
Invert selection,
Go to Effects/3D/ drop shadow and apply these settings.


Deselect

Step 9
Go to layers/arrange/send to bottom

Step 10
Open up the flame.psp file
Go to edit copy

Step 11
Click on Layer 1
Go to Edit/Paste as a new selection.
Move the flame to the center of the candle holder.

I suggest that you hide the top layer and merge the bottom layers together.

This way you can arrange as you want.

Step 12
Click on Merged Layer
Go to Effects/3D/Drop Shadow and apply these settings.

Step13
Go to Top Layer and apply the same settings.

We have made one Egg Votive Cup. You can make many different colors in just a few minutes and arrange as needed.
