Material

You are allowed to download the material here and use it for your private use, 
but you are not allowed to change the name of the tubes or the mask,

The copyright belongs ALWAYS to the original artist/designer!
No copyright infringement is intended.

 

Remember to save often!

 

 

Before we start, you should open the masks, and store them into your Easy Palette. In case you need to freshen up your memory on how to save a mask into the EP - you can take a look at one of my other tutorials, where I explain a little bit more about how to use a mask in PI. You'll find the tutorial here.
Important - in my tutorials my masks fit the chosen background/object ... you achieve this by right clicking any mask inside the original category Mask Library in your Easy Palette. Now you choose the option Fit Mask. 


Very important:
Do NOT merge the pictures before I tell you to do so!
