I’m now going to make a a Glass of Juice in Photoshop. This is slightly long technique, so here I’m going to start.

1. Take a new file of any size, I’m taking 560×700 px with 72 resolution and RGB color mode.


2. Now we need to add a Vertical Guideline in the middle of the file, run the command View>> New Guide and type 280 px (because half of 560 is equal to 280).


Here you will get:


3. Now pick Pen Tool pen-tool and draw the shape as follows: (hope you will be familiar with Pen tool, if no then visit my earlier tutorials). You have to use Pen tool with Add Anchor Point add-inchor-point-tool tool to make this shape.


4. Now right click anywhere and select Make Selection from the menu, then type 0 in the feather box and hit OK.


you will get this:


5. Create new layer and fill it with any color like black.


6. Now pick Move tool and press Ctrl+J to copy this layer. Then press Ctrl+T and while holding the Ctrl key move the center node towards the right middle node and then right click on it and select Flip Horizontal.

9. Press Ctrl+J to duplicate this layer and press Ctrl+T, and in the Top Property bar write 95% in W and 94% in H (we are reducing the height to 94% and widht to 95%), press <Enter> twice.


10. In Layer Panel double click on Gradient Overlay layer and in the Layer Panel to change the setting. Set the Blend Mode to Color Burn and Opacity to 65%. Also, change the Angle to 125. Then position the layer, as in the image below.


and this should be result:


11. In the layer panel click on the newly copied layer by holding the Ctrl key, so that selection around this shape would come. Run the command Select >> Transform Selection. Rotate the selection 180 degree and move the selection on top of the shape like the following and press <enter> key.


12. Now hold down Ctrl+Alt+Shift keys and click on the newly created glass layer, stunning-mesh-tut19-17

so it will intersect with the selection and you will get on the Ellipse on top of the shape, take new layer (rename it Opening) and fill it with #99b2bb and set layer opacity to 20%.


13. Create new layer and rename it as Reflection. Pick the Rectangular Marque Tool rectangular-marquee-tool to make a rectangular selection that is bigger than the glass. Get the Gradient Tool gradient-tool, choose the “Reflected Gradient” preset, which is in the Metals Set.


Then fill the selection with a “Reflected Linear Gradient” from the left to right and press Ctrl+D to unselect, as:


14. Go to Image > Adjustments > Curves (Ctrl+M) Then change the shapes of curves to get this:


you will get this:


15. Set the “Reflection” Layer Opacity to 50%. Now we are going to make this rectangle as the Glass shape, to do so go to Edit > Transform > Warp. (This will present only CS versions, not in the older versins please). Then change the shape to fit in the shape of the glass. Make sure that it is slightly bigger than the glass, as show in the image below.

Here you will get:


20. Apply a Gradient Overlay Layer Style to the “Juice” layer with these settings:
