Create a new document. Rgb by size 600 * 600 px with white background.
Refer to the tool palette and select the tool. Custom shape
Above there are settings for this tool.

Rasterize our shape – right-click on the shape layer and select the command Rasterize Layer
Select the shape (hold the key Ctrl and click on the layer with the figure of the left mouse button)

In the end, it should turn out like this:
For the next step, create a NEW layer.
Click on the letter “D“to reset color palette to black and white

Select the round selection tool
And select a small part of the icon. Here’s how:
Refer to the palette Layers and set such parameters for the layer Layer 1
Now select the fill tool and fill the selection with white.
