Neu and Simple Lace Mask Tile
You will need PaintShop Pro and
Filters for this tutorial.
Start with a new image 150x150 pixels, white and
go to Effects/Plugins/Neu/Weissensee, apply at the default settings.
Effects/Plugins/Simple/Top Left Mirror,
This is what it will look like.
Oh wow.. that was just TOO easy! Okay.. here comes the not so tricky
Go to masks/new/from image, source luminance, invert unchecked.Masks/Save
to disk. Save to your masks folder
with a name like neulace1.msk, because using the other neu filters
or changing the settings on this one make different laces.
Go ahead and close out that image once you've saved the mask.
Open a new image, 100x100 pixels, and flood fill with whichever background color you prefer,
then add a new layer and flood fill with a good lace color, I used a creamy color, #F5E9D5,
then masks/load from disk, pick out the mask you just saved and apply it. Then masks/delete
and choose merge with current layer. Merge visible layers and your tile is done.
