Very easy effect to achieve.

What mine looks like.


1. Create new document. Any size. Preferably square dimensions.

2. Set your Foreground color to #c90202 nd Background color to #000000.

3. Go to Filter>Render>Clouds. Then “CTRL = F” 3 times. Then do Filter>Render>Difference Clouds and “CTRL = F” 3 times.

This is what you should have so far.


4. Do Image>Adjustments>Levels and use these settings.


5.Final Step. Go to Filter>Artistic>Plastic Wrap and apply these settings.

Just made this after following THIS tutorial. Took a while but worth the time invested.


Facial Hair

I’m going to do this tutorial a little differently than my previous tutorials.

First off, open the image you are going to add the facial hair to.Here is the one I’m using. It’s my son Tyler.

open image

Duplicate the background layer. Press “CTRL + J”

Use whatever method you feel most comfortable with to select the area for the facial hair. I used the “Pen Tool”. If you use the “Pen Tool” like I did press “CTRL + ENTER” to make the selection complete.


Select the “Brush Tool” and open the brush palette so we can make the facial hair brush.

Shape Dynamics


Color Dynamics

Transfer and Smoothing

Now start brushing inside your selection until you get a result similar to mine or the way you want it. This step can be tricky to get the hang of so be patient until you get the result you want.

Have fun with it.

Here’s my result.
