REMEMBER TO SAVE OFTEN
We will be be making the Star Of David shown above. The outline below has been resized a lot so you can see it clearly.
To make this easier I have numbered all pixels over 1.
Step 1: Outline
Open a new image 100 x 100 transparent.
Select the brush tool with the following settings.
Size: 1 - Hardness, Opacity and Density: 100
Zoom in to about 800% - 1000%
Set your foreground to colour 1 on the outline colour chart (#FCB918) and start drawing your outline.
I started at the top of the star.
Step 2: Fills
When your outline is complete, select your magic wand with the following settings and click inside any one of the star sections.
Flood fill this selection with colour 2 on your colour chart (#F5E0A9).
Selections float, Effects 3D effects, Cutout with the following settings
Shadow colour: Use your STAR outline.(#FCB918)
Make sure fill interior with colour is UNchecked.
Repeat for all the other star sections.
Merge all visible and save as a png.
