I need a tutorial on how to make a metallic paint layer in Photoshop 7. I'm doing it for my new project for my next paint.

Create a New Layer above your base color layer (Ctrl+Shift+N).
Fill with 50% Gray (Shift+F5) Contents > Use: 50% Gray.
Add Noise: Filter > Noise > Add Noise @ 7.16% / Distribution: Gaussian / Monochromatic checked.
Change Blending Option (Right-click layer > Blending Options > General Blending > Blend Mode: Overlay @ 100% Opacity).
Duplicate Layer (Right-click > Duplicate Layer).
Change Blending Options (Right-click > Blending Options > General Blending > Blend Mode:Multiply @ 15%).

These are just general settings. Play around with the percentage amount of Noise and the Opacity of the Multiply Layer to get different effects depending on what your base color is.

Can one of the admins sticky this because of Sage's post? Maybe take the question mark away from the title?

How the heck do you bring up the blending option? I keep right clicking on the layer, but all that comes up are rename, duplicate, delete, etc...

Do you have the layer you want to change the Blending Options on 'Selected'? You know, by left-clicking it? That's the only thing I can think of off hand. Also, you didn't say, but what design program are you using? I wrote this for Photoshop. It shows up for me (in PS11/CS4) even with just a single layer.
