You may print this out for your own personal use, but please do not rewrite, translate, e-mail out, offer any part of this on any other site, add to a CD, or claim this as your own. Your finished result is yours to do with as you please, including making tags and/or snags for others. You may offer your results wherever you wish, but you may not sell for profit. This tutorial was written by timber on September 23, 2011.

I wrote this tutorial using PSP8.  To complete this tutorial you should have a comfortable working knowledge of the Tools, Materials and Layer palettes, as well as the Menu options.

For this tutorial, you will need:
Paint Shop Pro

  1. Open PSP.

  2. Open an existing image or create a New Image to work on.

  3. Add a New Raster Layer.

  4. Load the Paint Brush Tool.

    Select the +Round 10 brush from the Brush Tip drop-down list or apply these settings to the Paint Brush Tool (Shape:round; Size:10; Hardness:50; Step:10; Density:100; Thickness:100; Rotation:0; Opacity:100; Blend Mode:Normal; Continuous:Unchecked; Wet Look Paint:Unchecked).

  5. Make a single brush impression on the canvas with color #C0C0C0.

  6. Select the brush impression
    Select All/Float/Defloat.

  7. Apply an Inner Bevel
    Effects>3D Effects>Inner Bevel

    Use the Default settings, or enter these settings if you don't have the default settings (Bevel:1, Width:8; Smoothness:0; Depth:20; Ambience:0; Shininess:0; Color:White; Angle:315; Intensity:50; Elevation:30).

  8. Apply the Polished Stone filter.
    Effects>Texture Effects>Polished Stone

    (Blur:0; Detail:1; Polishing:10; Angle:45; Color:White).

  9. Select none.
    Selections>Select None

Here's an example of the studs that I made in a spiral shape using brush sizes 8-15.

For this example, I used brush size 15 then applied Mura's Copies (spiral, number=30).

I've decorated my sig tag with the studs using size 11.
The font is Planet X, size 48.

For this tag, I loaded the +Square10 brush (instead of the round brush) and made my impression.  Then I rotated the impression to the right 45 degrees before applying the bevel and polished stone filters.  The font is Kingthings Chimera.

I'd love to see your results!
