Tube used in this tut is by Michael Calandra called Lost Valley
Filters plugins: Distort -Pinch. Eye Candy 4 Glass and gradient glow
start off with a 600 by 300 workspace flood filled in white.
Add a new raster layer and flood fill it with a gradient matching your tube colors i used #562613 and #3c4335 starburst repeat at 6.
Duplicate it twice and apply Distort-pinch at the amount set to 100. For each layer add it once for the bottom, twice for the middle and three times for the top layer.
Close the top two layers.
Pally the tube four times and merge down. Duplicate it once and change the blend for the bottom to luminance (l) and opacity to 57. on the top tube change the blend to soft blend and opacity to 52.
Add the closeup tube at the top layer, duplicate it and apply Gaussian blur at 5 to the bottom.
Activate the last layer ,selections,modify,selection borders, set to 2, add a new raster layer and flood fill in a gold gradient . Move this layer to the top and apply a gradient glow with two colors from the tube. i used the brown from the first gradient and white.
Using a pixel font type Lost or whatever wording you like to match your tube. Change the blend to overlay.Duplicate it and move it down .
Using your pen tool set to size 2, set line style to whip and draw a line under your word art. duplicate it and move it to the bottom. Merge them down and duplicate twice more. Add noise to all line layers .
Using your selection tool set at rectangle. draw one behind your tube, add a new raster layer and flood fill it with a gradient. Add a texture of blinds to it. I used 2, 81, black bot boxes checked. Change the blend to hard light, duplicate mirror and flip.
