This tut was written on January 12. 2012
It is written using PSPX2; I'm sure the same effects are available in other versions.

A tube.
I am using the work of Barbara Jensen.  You need to purchase a license
to use this work from Barbara Jensen.

The following filters:

Filters Unlimited 2
Krusty's Volume 2 Pattern Generator/M/Radial 2
Xero - Porcelain

I am putting the pattern we are using in grey scale so anyone can do this tut here.
But I will describe how I made this.

Let's begin!

Choose a Light Color for your FG
Pick a Dark Color of the same color as your FG color.

Open a new Image 800 X 800

Open Filters Unlimited 2
KrustyVol2 / Pattern Generator/ M/ Radial 2 at these settings

Custom Selection

Image/Crop to Selection

Go to Adjust/Hue & Saturation to colorize your square.
If you have the Color Changer Tool change to the Light Color of your Tube.

Copy your Krusty Square.

Open a New Image, 600x250.

Paste your Krusty square as a new layer.


Effects / Image Offset at these settings

Duplicate / Mirror

Effects/ Image Offset at these settings for the duplicate.

Merge layer down

Copy your Close Up of the tube and move to the side you wish to put it on.

Use blend mode that you like, I used Luminance Legacy and lowered the opacity to 46%.

Close everything but the background and Close Up and Merge All Visible.

Copy your regular tube, and apply it to the side of your choice. 

Apply Xero/Porcelain at these settings,
I have saved these settings so I can use them anytime just by hitting load and go to My Documents where it is saved. 
Huge time saver!

Crop your tag to 600 X 250

A good time to push Shift D and get another copy to make your avatar with.
Set aside we will come back to it.

Decide what color you wish to use for the border.

New Layer/Fill with that color/ Select All/ Contract 2/ Delete/ Select None

Add your copyright and license if applicable

Add your name

Your Avatar that you have set aside. 

Crop a section that you like to 150 X 150.

New Layer/Fill with that color you picked for the border on the forum set

Select All/ Contract 2/ Delete/ Select None

Add copyright and license if applicable.
