    Hi all.. I've just finished my PC-6 Turbo Porter, and i've started a paintkit but i've never done one before. I've got a pretty good understanding of Paintshop pro but if anyone has any handy tips for me that would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks:)

    You must under Paintshop Pro work with Layers.
    And save the finished Paintkit, for anotherone to use, not as bmp. Because if I download your Paintkit and when I open the bmp in PSP, it will me not show the Layers.
    You have to save it as .psp File than i can use the Layer in PSP.

    Hope this help a little bit.:)

    Paintkit tips

    Hi seanpintara,

    Something I appreciate with a paint kit is to have the details contrasting for both light and dark paint. i.e. a layer of dark rivets and a layer of light rivets. That way they show up no matter what the colors used. If you offset the layers slightly you can also achieve a 3d look to them as well.
