Memories

Morning Memories Sepia

I’m wearing two new items from Ploom, the mesh Cynthia hair, which is available in the store, and the Lea Libra skin from the Zodiac event.  I love the eye makeup, it’s a fun playful look.  I’m also wearing a partial mesh slipdress from PaperDoll, which is available at Fair.  It’s available in a variety of fun playful colors. I went with my L’Aph ballet flats, which a really nicely textured mesh flats, in a duo tone of Green and Camel.

Trompe Loeil - Morning Light Cupboard Bed Rose Tint Variations

Trompe Loeil recently released the mesh Morning Light Cupboard Bed at Fair.  It’s a new event, and for more information check out the blog.  This bed, has several shelves for decorating.  I’ve decorated the interior with some of my most favorite little items, many limited editions, and items no longer available, so I won’t list them.  The bed comes in two versions, filled with single, and couples PG animations/poses, and Adult.  There are several different choices of bed linen textures available.  The outside wood frame and the inner wood surround are in a light grey wood texture, and since the item is modifiable, makes it a great item to select for your home as you can tint it to match your mood, and decor. As you can see, tinting adds a nice unique touch, you can go from cute to dramatic. Here’s a variety of ways I tinted two versions, the Rose, and Blue Thistle. If you are unfamiliar with tinting, please see the end of my post for a quick tutorial. I’m using a different sit pose that isn’t included in the bed.

How to Tint Prims

Firstly, sorry some of my text and photos are small or blurry.  You can click through to see larger sizes on flickr, or follow along with the text instructions below.

1. Go into Edit Mode on an object, by right clicking it, and selecting Edit from the menu.

2. The Edit Window should be elongated, if you have a small window, look for a MORE button, or the thin bar at the bottom with a “v”, and click it.

3. Your default look in Edit Mode (unless you have recently been in the other edit mode tabs) is the General Tab, to the right of it is the Textures Tab – click it.

4. On the top part of your window there will be a small box with text: Edit Linked Parts , click this to select individual prims of your object to tint.

5. You now see your texture editing options.  If you were going to put a different texture on this item you would drag the texture to the texture box or click it to browse for it in your inventory.  We’re tinting, so we will use the Color Box instead. Click the prim you wish to tint, then click the Color Box.

6. Make sure your Apply Now box is check-marked. Now, your Color Picker window is open, and you can see the rainbow color box, you can move your cursor around to find different colors.  The bar on the right lets you slide  up and down the shade for each color.  The color you are currently using is displayed in the larger color box, if you like this color and want to use it on other prims you can drag it to your color bar.

7. Click the ok to close the color picker window, and then x to close the edit window.  Or select another prim to tint, then close.
