Antique Ball Jars
Antique Ball Jars
All work done in Photoshop 7. Changed image to sepia, colored each jar (using hue/saturation), layered with marble background for texture, used wet media brush on edges of top layer, and added a little watercolor effect.

I love these textured, old feel images, but have never been able to do one that I've liked. I'll just have to admire them through other people's work!

Awesome PS work and fantastic results, Julie!!

I've never seen these Bar Jars looking so good...Awesome PS work and effect. Tonal values are perfect as is texture..and very reminiscent of my younger days.
