In the final step, we will use some additional PSP effects and features to finish our oil painting. First merge the layers: Go to Layers || Merge || Merge visible.
Now we'll clarify the image. First make sure your Photo toolbar is visible; if it's not, go to View || Toolbars || Photo. Open the menu at the left of that toolbar and select "Clarify", use the default settings.
If it's not open yet, open your Script toolbar now: go to View || Toolbars || Script. Then select the script "Simple Caption" from the drop-down menu at the left of that toolbar, click on the little arrow on the right of the drop-down menu to run the script, and give your oil painting a title.
On the bottom layer ("Page Surface"; click on it in your Layer palette to activate it) you can change the page's color by going to Adjust || Hue and Saturation || Colorize:
– Hue = 24
– Saturation = 128
Then, on this same layer, apply the Brush Stroke effect again with the "Oil Painting" preset like before.
Finish up by adding a frame: Go to Image || Picture Frame and select a frame of your choice. I used "Edge Smudge 01" with the option "Outside the frame" checked. I then used Effects || Distortion Effects || Punch with its default value and applied it twice to narrow the outside frame.
You can now merge your layers, then save with a filename of your choice and you are ready to display your oil painting.
