You will find the original tutorial here :

This tutorial is a personal creation.
Any resemblance with another one would be only pure coincidence.
It is stricly forbidden to modify tubes, to change their name or take off the matermarks,
To present them on your sites or blog,
To share them in groups,
to make a bank of images, or to use them on lucrative purposes.

Thank you Sass for testing Cloclo’s tutorials

Thank you to respect Cloclo’s work and the tubers work.
Don’t hesitate to warn me if you have any trouble with this translation,
and I’ll try to fix the problem as quickly as I can

Material
tubes - mask - 1 alpha layer (selections on the alpha channel) - color palette
The main tube is not provided - Cloclo used a tube signed by Laguna
other tubes are signed by Cloclo
mask is signed by Animabelle
the tubes provided are licence free

open all the tubes into PSP and duplicate them. Work with the copies to preserve orignals
open the mask and minimize it to tray
copy / paste selections into the folder « selections » of Corel PSP General folder
copy / paste mask into the folder « mask » of Corel PSP General folder
double click on the presets to install them ( or import )
TIP 1 -> if you don’t want to install a font -->
open it in a software as « Nexus Font » (or other font viewer software of you choice)
as long as both windows are opened (software and font), your font will be available in your PSP
TIP 2 -> from PSPX4, in the later versions of PSP the functions « Mirror » and « Flip » have been replaced by -->
« Mirror » --> image -> mirror -> mirror horizontal
« Flip » --> image -> mirror -> mirror vertical

Filters (plugins) used
Effet / plugins / I.C.Net Software / Filters Unlimited 2.0 / VM Toolbox

Use the pencil to follow the steps
hold down left click to grab it and move it

Important
Open all images with PSP, duplicate them and close the originals.
Never work with original images.
Cloclo works with PSPXIV ; I work with PSP pro 2018
but you can follow the steps with another version of PSP
don’t forget to save your work often

Colors
use the Dropper tool to pick up the colors into your tubes
Cloclo chose these colors

color 1 -> ForeGround color -> #c0bdda
color 2 -> BackGround color -> #534959
Don't hesitate to change the colors and the blend modes of the layers,
according to your tubes and images
