    Blob or Smudge in Photoshop


    I've been trying for days to figure out how to create a 3d-is smudge or blob like from a tube of toothpaste. They're popular on makeup sites but I can't figure out how to do one. Is it a brush?

    Hey there - you need to link an image file, not the website, in the image tags in order for it to show up. I'm not sure what happened with "smudge.jpg," but you also need to upload the image if it's from your computer.

    I can take care of it - here's the image:

    And it's on this page: ladyburd.com/product_detail.php?categories_id=10&maincol=1

    Thanks Mark. And that's exactly the look I need. Any ideas if it can be done in Photoshop?

    Yep, another fella showed me that which works great if I doing a one-ff piece. But my wife
    owns a cosmetics company and since I retired last year, I thought I'd lend her some of my skillsets.
    Then I ran into this situation where she has 15-20 colors of one particular line and 15-20 of
    another and so on and so on and so I thought there would have to be a way to emulate what we were always doing
    with blood splatter which is quick and simple with no dodge and burn or pressure brushing and smudging but I simply can't find anything like that.
    Liquids work well with filters like bevel and contours with maybe some texture dropped in but trying to get a smudged look to a clay-ey substance
    is proving quite daunting. Thanks for all the suggestions though.
