In today’s tutorial, we will make a mother of pearl abalone shell texture. Abalone shells are quite iridescent, usually blue and green with plenty of sparkles and gorgeous texture, lines and squiggles. We will be using the Liquify tool to re-create those lines and ruffles that look like a shell texture.
I will show how to do this using my Holographic & Iridescent brushes for Procreate, though you are very welcome to experiment with any other shiny or texture brushes that you have. You can also try this effect with lighter colors for a more subtle mother of pearl effect, similar to the opal that we did a few weeks ago.
You can watch the tutorial by clicking the video link below, and you will also find written instructions and other details in the video description.
I would love to see what you come up with! You’re very welcome to tag me on Instagram @alainajensen, use #alainajensenbrushes or share your work in our free facebook group.
