Join Lee Varis for an in-depth discussion in this video Lesson 13: Rebuilding skin pt. 1, part of Beyond Skin: Going Deeper with Photoshop CS3.

I'm going to show how I do it.…
All right, so here we have--I usually have trouble again getting people to…show the before picture.…This is my sister who has given me permission to show the before.…All right, there she is in all her glory, and you can kind of see that this is…not a spring chicken anymore and she's seen maybe a little bit too much sun.…And we're going to have to really rework the skin quite a bit.…This is the technique we use for the older actresses, and it starts by copying…that background layer, make a new copy, all right.…
