- So now we're going to start…adding some highlights and shadows to the glass.…Now, this really helps to have a little bottle…in front of you so you can kind of…study how things work.…How these little highlights and stuff…go around and so on.…So, what we're going to do is,…right off the bat,…let's make sure we're in the layer…for the bottle itself.…There it is.…Let's go in here and do midtones,…and I'm gonna just add a little burn right to that edge.…Right through there, like that.…There we go.…Hitting it a couple of times right there.…
