I am enjoying the versatility of our new Flypaper metallics, I love the light metallic sheen that some of them give to photos depending on the blending mode and opacity of the texture layer, this adds a whole new dimension. In this shot of a single hydrangea floret on an old mirror, I combined the metallics with one of our tintype edges, they work so well together!
Now onto the processing, and unlike Paul who usually adjusts his photo before adding textures, I mostly texture then adjust the resulting image.
Verdigris Scratch @ Overlay 100% masked from the focus areas
Metallic Sky @ Overlay 100% masked as above
Tintype 30@ Multiply 100% masked gently from the flower
Then I merged visible and applied a selective hue saturation layer to tone down the red blob in the background
Then it was onto Nik where I selectively used the detail extractor to bring out the details of the flower.
