Hey Folks

As promised here’s another NEW episode of my weekly podcast / show taking us up to episode 44!!!

In this episode I show you how to fake the wet look using a filter within Photoshop; namely Plastic Wrap.

Now I’ve actually shown this technique in an earlier video on my Wolverine Picture but in this video I explain the sliders we use in more detail and also about applying the filter as a Smart Object i.e. retouching non destructively which is exactly what we should all be aiming for to give us flexibility.

Hope you like it 🙂

Of course this is purely faking the look and you can’t beat the look of real water however I think you’ll find it does a pretty convincing job.

Here’s a look at my Wolverine in London picture where I actually forgot to spray water on our model Glenn during the photo shoot but thankfully…Plastic Wrap to the rescue and voila 🙂
