Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
For this tutorial, I’m using a
tube by Rene Kunert
The tube is now FTU &
available here.

Fill the new image with black
or a dark color.
Paste your tube as a new layer.

Apply the plugin

Duplicate the wallpaper layer once.
X out the copy layer.
On the original wallpaper layer,
Adjust blur Gauassian Blur 15

On the same layer, apply the mask
Merge group.
Adjust add noise
Uniform 25 to this layer.

Now unhide the copy layer we hid earlier.
Apply the plugin
VM Distortion Tilomat 2000 default settings.

Take your selection tool, and select various
squares on this layer. You don't want to select
all of them - just certain ones.
Once you have some selected, press delete
on your keyboard.
This should allow you to see the mask layer
underneath as the selected squares should


Okay paste your tube as new layer.
You want this the top layer in your layer palette.
Position on the right side of your tag.

Hid the tube copy layer.
Merge the rest of the layers visible.
