When you wanna do something out of the box, try water color effect.
Today I’m trying to replicate that success. This is a collection of watercolor styled web designs.
This is a unique and artistic designing technique so you shouldn’t be applying it everywhere even if you love it very much. Most of the websites demand a clean elegant look, watercolor style is only for portfolios, personal homepages and such stuff.
Creating Water Color Effect
There are many many ways to create this effect. You can use a plugin with Photoshop which can do the job.
All you have to do is input your design and add watercolor filter.
By default Photoshop does contain water color filters I wouldn’t suggest using them. They are not that realistic.
And if you want the best looking stuff, well don’t use water color filter at all. Manipulate with noise levels on each object independently and that will give you a result that really creates an impression… but sadly this process takes a long long time.
