    Great tip, very simple and can be applied in thousands of different ways.
    But why a video? it took 4 minutes to explain what could have just as easily been done in 3 pictures and a few paragraphs (maybe 6 pictures if you want to be REALLY detailed..).

    I dunno, who am I to judge, I’m the one benefiting from the tut anyway xD
    Cheers :)

    Thanks for a great little tutorial – love it! I liked the video, sometimes it’ easier to understand when you can hear the instructions. I find written instructions can vary so much and one person’s interpretation of how something can be produced can be totally different to another. Well done for a simple, clear explanation.
