  1. I already pressed Submit Comment before i realised that I wasn’t finished typing so:

    Further it’s a really nice result, gonna make it as soon as I have enough time. 😉

  2. I just didn’t understand this phrase :

    “select pen tool on a new layer above your simcard but UNDERNEATH your gold plate make a selection like this and fill with the color white.”

    can you make it clear please .

  3. basically make a selection as shown inbtween the 2 layers, so the white shine is on the simcard not the gold plate

    think of it as a sandwich

    simcard 1st (bread) / then the white shine (ham) / then the gold plate (bread)
