Anna & iCads colors....

Okay, so I did a livestream earlier on how to recolor objects fast and easy. As Anna hasn't yet shared her actions and iCad has only shared her hex codes, I figured I'd share how I do them.

Okay so we start with Anna's because that's the easiest.
I use images so I can copy/paste and it does go faster so I'll include those for people.

I start with a white base. I DO NOT desaturate. If it doesn't start white, I go with the color white create a rasta layer and then fiddle with overlay, color, soft light, etc until I get the white I want as a base.

Here's a little tip, always put the multiply layer before the Color. The Color layer is just to help the multiply layer pop!

Apple Green: Multiply 81%, Color 100%
Apricot: Multiply 67%, Color 100%
Beige: Multiply 71%, Color 100%
Black: Multiply 95%, Color 100%
Blue: Multiply 89%, Color 100%
Blueish Purple: Multiply 89%, Color 100%
Brown: Multiply 95%, Color 100%
Dark Blue: Multiply 95%, Color 100%
Dark Green: Multiply 95%, Color 100%
Dark Pink: Multiply 85%, Color 100%

  Lime Green: Multiply 85%, Color 100%

Okay, iCads are a lot different and I have 4 different methods to those.
Let me state once again that I DO NOT desaturate. These are only 12 of her colors. Why twelve? It's the ones I like and abuse.

HINT: Cottage White is the only one with a third Rasta Layer.
If you are starting with a WHITE texture, here's what you'll use.
(I rarely use this one and only use it as a last resort.)
Acorn: Multiple 89%, Color 100%
Burnished Amber: Multiple 89%, Color 100%
Cayenne: Multiple 95%, Color 100%
Cottage White: Multiple 95%, Color 100%
Espresso: Multiple 95%, Color 100%
Firepit: Multiple 91%, Color 100%
Madeira: Multiple 95%, Color 100%
Saddle: Multiple 91%, Color 100%
Treehouse: Multiple 95%, Color 100%
Vintage Lantern: Multiple 95%, Color 100%
Winchester Grey: Multiple 95%, Color 100%
Woodland Brown: Multiple 95%, Color 100%

If you are starting with a MEDIUM WOOD (think brownish to blackish) texture...
(I rarely use this one and only do if there isn't a decent light wood texture.)
Acorn: Overlay 49%, Color 100%
Burnished Amber: Overlay 49%, Color 100%
Cayenne: Overlay 61%, Color 100%
Cottage White: Overlay 49%, Color 100%, Soft Light 100%

Winchester Grey: Overlay 49%, Color 100%
Woodland Brown: Overlay 65%, Color 100%

If you are starting with a LIGHT WOOD (think OFB light wood or AL light wood) texture..
(This is my preferred choice. The colors pop more.This also works well for Pooklet's Volatile base.)

Sidenote: Sometimes you do have to fiddle with the Multiply or Overlay layer a bit in the opacity department to get them to match exactly. I'm sure, however, that you guys can figure it out. :) Also you can find the curtains, fabric and wood that's in my video over on my resources page. :) Enjoy! *giggles*

These are so useful! I'm definitely going to use your method with the multiply and color layers, I have a bunch of recolors I need to redo. :P Thanks for these, and thank you for making very enjoyable livestreams ;)

I hope it's some what helpful. I really didn't know how to post this since it's my first time giving other people a look at how I do things. It generally works so I'm usually happy with the results (unless I forget the shaders).

You're welcome and I may have to break down and actually watch one of my livestreams. I think I sound like a dork. *giggles*

Oh awesome! I really appreciate this, even though I just downloaded almost everything you've created here. 7,714 files (1.01 GB)! *whew*

Your livestream was really cool for me, since you're the first person to ever do a tutorial using Paintshop (which is what I have), so I learned a lot of stuff I didn't know, and you confirmed some things I wasn't sure about. So thanks doubly for that!!

Wow, I've uploaded that much stuff. *jawdrops*

I love Paintshop for recolors, it's just so much easier to handle than Photoshop. I guess because I mostly do editing in Photoshop, I find it bulky when I want to do simple things. So I'm glad it came in handy for you. :) You're very welcome and if I didn't cover anything you are curious about, feel free to ask. I don't bite, well not hard and not often. :P

I missed a large chunk of your livestream because of family stuffs (that turned out to be not so important after all)! D: I am so glad you shared this, I just gathered enough courage to make CC, we'll see how that goes XD

It's easy. If you ever get into meshing that's the hardest to me. I can do it, not very well mind you because it sometimes comes out looking way different than I wanted. So yeah, I do this instead. Although trying to learn the repository technique now. *sighs* I feel the headache coming.
