For Materials, click on the Zip file.

Unzip the materials into a working folder. Open the materials in PSP, copy and close originals. Place jd-texture23.psd in your PSP/Texture folder. Export the Chinese symbol for Beauty into your PSP brushes. You will need the plugins Filters Unlimited 2/Gradients and Graphics Plus/Cross Shadow for this tutorial. I have used PSPX3 to create this tutorial but you may use an earlier version. It is assumed you have a working knowledge of PSP to do this tutorial.
