Photoshop tutorial: Magic glow

How to create vector magic hat in Photoshop was my favorite design. If you like to learn and want to know how kindly visit above link. With both tutorials you might know how to use Brush Tool in Photoshop. In this tutorial you will learn how to set Brush Tool in effect. 

Let make a new document size: 10 x 10 cm and apply Gradient as seen below:

and get a magic glass to your work.
We make a shadow below this glass and also make this glass might lightness.
1- make glass more lightness ==> image adjustment ==>Curves (Ctrl + M) apply lightness as below.
2- We make a shadow below this glass. Use Elliptical Marquee Tool (M) draw it and apply black color and go to Filter => Blur ==> Gaussian Blur then set Radius: 4.0 pixels
Use Elliptical Marquee again to draw to of glass apply white color and make it a bit blur (to make it blur just follow above instruction) and apply Outer Glow with below option:
  • Filter ==> Layer Style ==> Outer Glow
  • Blend Mode: Color Dodge
  • Opacity: 75%
  • Size: 114%
make a new layer and set up Brush Tool in below step by step option:
Using your foreground color in white to brush here and there then apply Outer Glow again. See option below
Finally use Lasso Tool to draw a layer (L) in white color then apply Gaussian Blur with Radius: 90.8%
Then here your result.
