I put together a quick tut on how to make Crown Molding, Baseboards and Chair Rail on a simple wall. This is not the only way and may not even be what some consider the best way but it is a way that works and is simple to accomplish. As usual all colors and any numbers used to create this tutorial can and probably should be played around with to find the results you like best. This was not made to be pretty and stolen it was made to show how to make the textures.



























You could make many variations on this... such as wall paper on the top wall and wood panel below the chair rail or skip the chair rail altogether and just create wall paper between the crown and base boards or make wood panel between them ... Maybe even make a Tiled Wood Grain on the molding itself... the limits are in your imagination. The molding could have many more shadows creating a much more complex molding ... they could be wider or more narrow. BE CREATIVE!!!! and... happy Deving!

There is a thread on ruffles Here. That should really help with the concept of curtains. Look at the deviant art tut for shading and Keef's tut on ruffles in that thread. Keef Shows it used on "drapes" on page three.

All I did was made a simple tile-able wood grain ... you can see how to do that
Here.

Then I placed that into the wall texture I showed you how to make up there ^^^. I connected a couple together to make it long and scaled it to stretch the length of the wall.

Next I went to my chair rail layer and selected the area of the rail itself... then I went to the wood grain layer and clicked <layer via copy..." and made a layer of the wood grain the same size as the chair rail. I set the wood grain layer to "multiply".




I then picked the layer with the crown molding and slected that section of the image so I could make a new layer of wood grain exactly the same size as my crown molding.



I opened my wood grain layer and clicked "layer via copy..." and made a new layer of wood grain exactly the same size as my crown molding and set it to "multiply".



I selected my base board layer...



and created the wood grain layer again using the same "layer via copy..." method.



I'm going to turn off my chair rail layers and my baseboard layers so you can better see these next steps. Now to create the paneling I rotated my wood grain layer so the grain goes vertically and selected a rectangle that overlapped my chair rail and baseboards. I created a "layer via copy...". I then right clicked that active layer and clicked <blending options>. I set it to "Bevel and Emboss" with "Contour" clicked.



Double click "Bevel and Emboss" set the settings something like this. I changed the "highlight mode" from "Screen" to "Overlay".



It should look something like this.



Now I copied this layer and moved it so they overlap by 1 pixel. I also moved it vertically so the wood grains would not show at exactly the same point. It will not look quite so "copied" this way.



I copied the layer again and moved it a random distance and slid it down some.



I continued copying and moving this layer till I filled the whole area between the chair rail and the base board.



Now I'll turn the base board chair rail and crown molding layers back on including the wood grain layers over them so you can see it all together.



To create the wall paper I pulled up a lace pattern I had saved in my files.



I dropped that as a layer into my drawing scaled to the size I liked. Then I set it to "multiply". I trimmed it to only fit the wall paper area and played with the opacity till I liked it.



This may have sounded like a lot but basically it was the same thing over and over to fill the white areas with a wood grain. I hope this helps.
