Paint Your Mountain (Revisited)

This is fairly easy to do if you use Photoshop First you need 2 photos. The one you want to paint on (Lets call it the wall) and the one you would like to paint it with (Call it the paint). Now you need a separate B&W copy of your wall. this will be your displacement map. Now blur the map enough to remove all texture from the photo and save it as a psd. now move the paint over the wall and adjust it in place.. Next (With paint layer selected) select filter distort displace. Use the map you have just created and you will be ask for 2 numbers. They need to be the same. I used 10 in this photo. You might need to change the blending mode. I went with Overlay here then I made a copy of that layer and changed the blending mode to Multiply and reduced the opacity to my taste. That's all folks!
