This tut was written on February 23, 2012.
It is written using PSPX; I'm sure the same effects are available in other versions.

SUPPLIES
A tube and a closeup; you may also use a single tube.
I'm using a tube by PinUpToons, formerly of CILM.
A license and others tubes for this artist may be purchased from CDO.

Resize your tube to 400px high.
Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen.

The following filters:
Graphics Plus - Cross Shadow
DSB Flux - Blast
Alien Skin - Eye Candy 5: Impact (or another Glass filter, of choice.)

Font of choice (I used "Billy Argent Font").

You will also need my selections; download the zipped file HERE.
Unzip the file to your Selections folder.


Choose a darker color for your background color, and a lighter shade of the same color for your foreground.


STEP ONE


Open a new image, 125 px wide by 375 pixels high.

Floodfill with your lighter color.

Add your closeup tube as a new layer, moving into position.
Change the setting of this layer to Luminance (Legacy); change the opacity to 60.

Layers - Merge - Merge Visible.

Graphics Plus - Cross Shadow, change all the numbers to 50.

Effects - Texture Effects - Weave; 1, 2, 1, both boxes set to white, Fill Gaps box checked.

Selections - Select All.

Selections - Modify - Select Selection Borders using Inside, 2, Anti-alias unchecked.

Floodfill the selection with your darker color.

Selections - Select None.


STEP TWO

Image - Canvas Size to 350x500, centered.
Change BOTH the Top and Left numbers to 25.
The other numbers will reset automatically.

Duplicate the layer; then Image - Flip and Image - Mirror.

On the copy, Blur - Gaussian Blur using Radius = 10.

DSB Flux - Blast using Left, Percentage = 50.

Effects - Edge Effects - Enhance.

Effects - Texture Effects - Weave, change both boxes to black.
(In the above sample, I used white, but I think black works better.)

Move this layer to the bottom (Layers - Arrange - Send to Bottom.)


STEP THREE

Add a new layer.

Selections - Load/Save Selection - Load Selection From Disk.
Choose GraphSelection1.

Floodfill the selection with your lighter color; keep selected.

Alien Skin - Eye Candy 5: Impact - Glass using the following setting:



Selections - Select None.

Add a new layer.

Selections - Load/Save Selection - Load Selection From Disk.
Choose GraphSelection2.

Floodfill the selection with your darker color.

Selections - Select None.

Add a sharp drop shadow (I used 1, 1, 100, 1, black.)


STEP FOUR

Highlight the top closeup tube layer.

Add your resized tube as a new layer, moving into position.
Avoid placing the tube too close to the right edge.
This avoids a sharp edge on your drop shadow (as, unfortunately, seen in the above sample.)
Add a blurry drop shadow (I used 0, 25, 50, 25, black.)

Add the same drop shadow to the closeup tube layer.

Add your name, any word art, and all necessary copyright information.


Here is another example, using another tube by PinUpToons:
