Layer Style: Satin

So I'm going to call it my next one here, and I'm gonna do the satin. Satin is a little bit different on a larger image. You can go ahead and see this, but what we have with satin is kind of this kind of cool sat in the effect right here because I have the diamonds. I'm kind of getting this, but it creates this kind of sat in effect where you get these highlights and shadows with sat in that kind of gives you these little gleaming areas right there. And I can also control the angle at which the light appears, which completely changes how that satin actually looks and reflects on those so pretty cool and of course, the color for which my shadows are going to be done. So if I do kind of a red here on the purple, you can see how it blends in a little bit more. If I were to do a yellow on here and not going to multiply mellowed but actually go into like, lightened mode or something, it kind of will give me that little shimmer as if the light that's being casted on here is actually that col...

or light, ok. And then, of course, we go on the contour, we're just assuming that it's just hitting this, that basically the light of an angle until we go in and we do some really cool, funky stuff here, and we can just go in and kind of change it all up in most cases sat and just adds kind of this, like, soft, kind of textural quality to it, it's not like super strong with it, but that's, why we have, you know, change the thing kind of looks cool, wacky, crazy, funky right there get a whole bunch of stuff. Now, another nice feature is this I've gone in and like on my circle and my square up here, I've gone in, and I actually created those out of pixels, and I physically made them that particular color, nor to change that color, I would have to go back in and used by hugh saturation of paint bucket tool, and I would have to change that color in a certain way. Well, I made these purple, and because these are a shape player, I could always go back and double click on the shape layer. And, of course, I could just change the color, which changes the color of the shape layer, which, if you subscribe to my classes, you'll see that
