For this tutorial you will need the materials in the zip file below.

For an Italian, Danish, German, Spanish, French and Dutch translation click on the flags.


Unzip the materials into a working folder you have created on your desktop named Keeping Bunny Warm. Please duplicate and close original tubes using the copies for your work so you will not lose the originals. This tutorial was written using Graphics Plus/Cross Shadow, Mura Meister/PolarTransform and effects of PSP. To work this tutorial, it is assumed you have some working knowledge of Paint Shop Pro. I used PSP2020 for this tutorial.
