Panda Delight

Tutorial by Jcuttlebear01 aka JoAnn

I do these tutorials for fun and not
for any profit. I use them also as a learning tool to
help others learn the fun and art of paint shop pro.
All things I use are collected, the only thing I claim
Is the tag I make with these as my work.

This tutorial is written with the idea you
have some basic knowledge of PSP.
This was done in PSP 9 but should work with any.

3 graphics of choice.
Tubes of choice
