Hey all! So as much as I would love to make everyone these lovely pictures I thought it would be better if I shared a tutorial instead!

so Here we have Photoshop and our picture! (picture thanks to honeysprigs)

First it’s important we have a large picture and that we see most of the sim(s) upper body so we have the most room to work with when creating the plumbob.

Next we double click the background layer to make it layer 0.

Then we make a new layer and drag it under the picture and fill it with white.  

Next we click the button that is circled in the picture above. this will make a layer mask. (you can watch more about layer masks Here)

next make sure your layer mask is selected (just simply click on it) like above and use the bucket tool to fill it in with black.

your picture will disappear DO NOT PANIC!!!

Now (with our layer mask still selected) we will take our handy plumbob brush and make sure we have the color white selected. 

then we click where we want the plumbob to be on the picture and as you can see the picture has shown up again but in the brush shape!

mix together to get all kinds of variations! 

Hope this helps everyone! <3333
