Make A Gold Encased Bottle
As requested, here is a tutorial on making gold over a bottle. For my Bling Perfume Bottle I
used the Circle Text Plugin to make the letters and shapes, as seen at the beginning of
Barbieq's Jewel Tutorial here.
For this tutorial I've kept it a little simpler by using another method.
Here is the end result.

Plugins used:

Metalize, AA's Assistant
Align Object
Alpha Mask
Gradient Mapping
Hexagonal Grid

Sarkut's Gold Gradient XML is at the bottom of the tutorial.

After you have downloaded the XML at the bottom of the tutorial
Copy/paste the XML into this folder:
"C:\Users\<"Username">\Documents\Paint.NET User Files\Effect
Presets\Gradient Mapping"
Begin with an Image size of 3500 x 3500. A larger canvas gives a nicer result, but do
remember to save often during the process.
On the background layer make a B&W Gradient.
New Layer. With the Rectangle Select Tool
draw a rectangle on the canvas and fill it with
a Linear Blue (0094FF) & White gradient. Align lower center, but move it up a little to leave a
space below. (Optional - you can use Frosted Glass if you like).
Duplicate this layer and save one for later, for the bottle top - uncheck it for now.
Make a New Layer above the Bottle layer. Use the Rectangle Select Tool
to draw
another rectangle so that it extends slightly over the edges. With yellow color FFD800, fill it
with a Hexagonal Grid - with center boxes checked - Size horizontal = 100 and use the brush
size at about #15. This will be called the 'Mask Layer'.

This will be the method used to 'mask' and make the Gold, which will
be repeated throughout the tutorial at certain intervals.
1. Gaussian Blur the Yellow Hex lines at strength #1.

Copy the Mask layer into the clipboard.
On your keyboard, press:
Ctrl + A
Ctrl + C

Ctrl + D
This will select All of the layer, Copy the selection into the Windows clipboard,
and Deselect.
Make the Mask layer not visible. (Once you've finished the 10 steps, below, you can erase
the mask layer).
Position a new layer below the Mask layer, and use the rectangle select
to make a
rectangle slightly larger than the bottle & fill it with a vertical linear gradient of Hex C0C0C0
to Hex A0A0A0.

Name the layer 'Bottle Mesh'. Remember to save your work periodically as this large canvas
can slow things down.

3. Apply Alpha Mask with all checkboxes filled. Don't panic if your see nothing at first, as
the lines will be rather faint.

4. Duplicate :DuplicateLayer: and merge this layer 2 - 3 times to get a good
(Remember - keep saving your work)
5. With the Shift key down, Magic Wand
the alpha outside the Hex's, and invert
(Check your tolerance bar for the correct strength in order to select the boxes correctly.)
Make a new layer above the Hex's and apply Bevel Selection at default



Deselect and Gaussian blur @ 4 radius.

Merge down :MergeLayerDown: Beveled layer to the Hex layer . Duplicate the
resulting layer twice.
Apply Color - Metalize - Type3 to the top Layer, Type2 to the middle & Type1 to the


Set the middle and top layers to Negation blend mode.


Gaussian Blur all three Hexagon layers @ Gaussian Blur x 2 radius.

Merge :MergeLayerDown: the middle Hex layer down to the bottom Hex layer.
Then merge :MergeLayerDown: the upper Hex layer to the remaining Hex layer.
Apply AA's Assistant at default settings.
Use Gradient Mapping to colorize. Or, if you want to leave it silver/Chrome ....... stop

Be sure to have the Preserve Alpha box checked.
You can also use the Brightness / Contrast to give more shine.
Align your work.
