Glass stones

Tutorial - Glass Stones (originally by Lori J. Davis) - As with many tutorials that have been on line for many years, the links become unavailable! * Read notes below and you should be able to achieve a result.

Here I played with shapes and the warp tool and different colours to create the shapes underneath my stones.

Tutorial Note

Open new canvas 400 pixels x 400 pixels
Click on Effects / Artistic effects / Balls and Bubbles
Click on last used and select ljd_GlassStone preset,
Lower the zoom to about 22 so you can see the whole bubble
then you will see will see a little deformation bounding block
push the corners inwards to lower the size of your bubble slightly.
