Mura Meister Copies

The tube I used Queen of Diamonds (PTE3583) is by Maxine Gadd, you can purchase this tube from PTE here

The name of my font is Tagettes
I used size 42 & 48


Open a new transparent canvas 930x375, we will resize later
Floodfill with black

Paste the Q & diamond shape from your tube as a new layer
(If you're using a different tube you can use a fancy font to write the letter Q and your symmectric shape tool to draw a diamond shape)
Select around one & copy
Paste as a new layer
Delete your original Q & shape layer

Duplicate 9 times for 10 layers
From the top rename these layers to animation 1, 2, 3, etc
Activate animation 1
Apply muara meister copies changing the top & third #'s to 60 & the 2nd # to 80 (this will depend on the size of your shape, play around with it), set Phase at 100
Preset menu set to Spiral, shift mode Circle

Activate animation 2
Apply copies decreasing the phase by 10 to 90

change phase to 80 on animation 3

Decrease phase by 10 on each layer

On the last layer the phase # should be 10

Hide all these layers except the top one for now

Paste your tube as a new layer
Resize as needed
Add drop shadow

Resize all layers to 70%

Add your text, name & © info


Hide all your animation layers except # 1
Merge visible
Copy & paste into animation shop

Undo your merge
Hide animation 1 & unhide #2
Merge & paste after current in animation shop

Undo your merge
Hide animation 2 & unhide #3
Merge visible & paste after current in animation shop

Keep doing this until you have all 10 frames pasted

View your animation

Save as gif & you're all done!
