Photoshop Slime Tutorial

Slime TutorialThis is my second Photoshop tutorial. This tutorial is even easier than my last one, and it allows you to create some gooey slime in just a few clicks. The whole process shouldn’t even take half a minute. Keep reading to find out how.

Without further ado, here are the instructions:
(Note: tutorial done using Photoshop CS. Older version may not have some of the filters needed.)

Step 1: Create a new document.

Step 2: Make sure that you have a dark grey or black as you foreground colour. Using the paint brush tool, choose a brush with 100% hardness and appropriate size to paint the shape you want. You can see here I just painted a random shape.

Step 2

Step 3: Pick the dodge tool, and pick a round brush with 0% hardness and brush randomly on your shape so there are some lighter areas.

Step 3

Step 4: Now select your shape by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking on the base layer (since we only have one layer at this point). Go to Filters–>Liquefy, and move your mouse in a circular motion to swirl the different shades of grey together.

Step 4

Step 5: Go to Filters–>Artistic Effects–>Plastic Wrap. You?ll get something like the picture below. You may want to experiment with the settings a bit to get the look you want.

Step 5

Step 6: Here?s the final step. Click on Image–>Adjustment–>Hue and Saturation (or just press Ctrl+U to bring it up). Check the “colourize” box and put the Saturation slider to maximum. Now play with the Hue slider to get your desired colour. For this example I picked the classic slime green.

Step 6

And there you go, you made some slime!

Alternatively, you can skip step 4 and the slime you end up with it is a little less detailed, but a bit more “gooey” looking as shown by the picture below. You can be the judge as to which method is better.
