Today I will be showing how I do my pinwheel icons but this can work for anything you do (note: this is just the way I do it and if you have another way thats easier for you then just ignore me lol)
Supplies needed for icons
1. pinwheel brush
Credit: unknown source
Step 1: I always go ahead and put everything I want on the icon first, text, picture, hearts whatever. Today I will start with just a B to make this simple 😉 Font I used is 2peas fragile
Step 2: I always start a new canvas for my pinwheel so I can size it down and it doesn't get cut off on the icon. So open a new canvas mine is 500×500.
Step 5: Duplicate your pinwheel agian, now you should have 3 layers (you can do 4 but for now on the tutorial I will stick to 3)
Step 6: now click on the second (middle layer) pinwheel layer and goto free transform and rotate it slightly
Step 7: repeat step 6 but with your third pinwheel layer
Step 8: Click on your first pinwheel layer and hold down the Ctrl button and select your second and third layers while holding down the ctrl button. Now all the pinwheel layer should be selected:
Step 9: now take your little arrow tool
now with all the layers selected, drag them over to your icon
Step 10: now that the pinwheels are on your icon, with them still selected, position them where you want them online pharmacy and set all 3 layers to an opacity of 50
(or whatever you prefer, I used 50)
Step 11: now for animation, goto your animation window and hide the second and third pinwheel layers
Step 13: add a third animation layer and hide the second and first pinwheel layers so that only the third one is showing
Note: all my pinwheel layers are under the B!
Have fun ladies!!
