Incredibly fast and easy gold dipped roses

You will need a rose tube
(you can download the one I used for the title  here

and the one I used for the background here.
and Paint Shop Pro for this tutorial.

Step 1
open your tube, and duplicate it.

Step 2
Colors/Grey Scale
Colors/Increase Color Depth/16 Million Colors

Step 3
Set your foreground color to #F9EFE7
Go to effects/artistic effects/hot wax coating

Step 4
hue 26, saturation 103 for gold
hue 15, saturation 103 for copper
hue 183, saturation 18 for silver

Wow! That was easy wasn't it?
For the text I used white, converted to raster, then reset the foreground color to #F9EFE7, applied hot wax, and the same colorize.
