Chocolate rose

You probably met the shops that sell a variety of chocolate figures. For example, Lenin’s chocolate head, chocolate chess, flowers, etc.

Personally, I saw such a store in St. Petersburg. Very funny! There he was called “the museum of chocolate”, and in front of the door was a chocolate hare (the same as in the factory of stars spoke :)

What am I for? In addition, in this Photoshop tutorial we will turn an ordinary rose into a chocolate one!

Here is the original image:

Step 1:

The first thing we do is discolor the image.
Click Shift + Ctrl + U

It will turn out like this:

The note: If you want only a part of the image to become chocolate (for example, an image of a hand that holds an object, you need to make an object only chocolate) then first select that object, and then place this selection on a new layer (Ctrl + J), then it is necessary to discolor this part.

Step 2:

Now we need to select all the parts, which then become chocolate. In this case, the chocolate will be all rose. Therefore, the rose stands out completely.

Ctrl + click on a layer with a rose, if the rose lies on a separate background

– if the rose is merged with the background, then you need to select it using familiar selection tools (lasso, quick mask, magic wand, etc.)

Once the image is highlighted – save the selection – refer to the menu Select> Save Selection.
Name this selection, for example, “all.”

Next, create a new layer (Сtrl + shift + N) and call it “chocolate”.

Your rose is still highlighted. With the chocolate layer active, select the fill tool. To fill this selection with an appetizing chocolate color.

Step 3:

Change this layer blending mode to “hard light” (as shown)

Now we have a brown rose! It looks like chocolate, but saliva does not flow.

Now you need to merge two layers – “chocolate” with the original. Why click Ctrl + E.

Step 4:

Now select the tool – Finger we will spread the sharp edges and make the rose smooth and soft.

Install a soft brush with a force of about 60%.
Sometimes you will need to change the size of the brush – it all depends on the size of the rose petals.

Start lightly and very gently rub the edges. This part of the exercise is the most important, so you should give it enough time. Do not hurry! Do it well.

Step 5:

So, now on line drawing droplets.
Take the Lasso Tool and just draw something resembling a hanging drop of chocolate from the edge of the petal (see for yourself where the droplets will logically look better)
Fill this drop with the same color as the rose.

Create a new layer and draw another drop. Repeat these steps until you decide that there are enough drops to draw.

Then, merge all the layers with drops into one and name it “drops”

Here’s what happened with us:

Step 6:

Everything is good, but too flat.

Make a layer with drops at a time invisible (close the eye opposite the layer).

Now make sure the “chocolate” layer is active and grab the Brush tool. Set a small soft brush around. 2 px and approximately 60-80% transparency (opacity).

Akkurtano draw highlights at the edges of the rose, where you think natural light should fall.

They still look too sharp, so take the familiar Finger (such a tool) – strength 60%, the size 6 px.
Smear them white stripes.

Step 7:

Open the eye opposite the drop layer.

Step 8:

So the drops are back in place. But it seems that the drops are not natural. Agree that they need to “stick” to the area.

Select a layer with drops and using these two tools: – clarifier and – dimmer (small soft brush, range: midtones; exposure: 30-40%) start to stick the drops to the petals.

Drop also add highlights.

Step 9:

Already better. There are still a couple of shtrishkov.

Let’s add some more bright highlights to the whole rose!

First, merge all the layers together (ctrl + e) and change the name of the layer to “rose” Take a brush, make the transparency a little more than it was.

Refresh the old highlights, make bright accents.
Then take the Finger again and spread it together a little. Do not forget about the setting of transparency.

We hope that everything turned out great! You are a real pastry chef!

The note: If you suddenly did not want a chocolate rose, but, for example, honey or condensed milk, then remember that the consistency of these products is different, hence the appearance of the rose will be different.
Somewhere, the glare is more voluminous, somewhere a bit more real. See for yourself, try it!
