Could you elaborate what effect you want to achieve (and possibly post a link to an example)?
Can you describe more about what you mean by "rice painting"?
- Are you wanting to paint the Taj Mahal on a single grain of rice?
- Or perhaps airbrush a field of drying rice (kind of like sidewalk art)?
- Or are you thinking to emulate the style of a painter named Rice?
Edit: I see my question was already answered.
thanks for your reply. Ya i am trying to painting Tajmal in Single grain with the help of photoshop, but thats come out cut&paste job, how can i do classic job, please help me
Do you have a photograph of a blank grain of rice?
Then I would recommend
• creating a Group with a Layer Mask to acurately fit that grain
• placing the other image in that as a Smart Object
• setting that SO to Blend Mode Multiply
• using Warp and/or Puppet Warp to fit the image onto the grain
• splitting the SO’s Blend If settings’ »Underlying Layer«’s right handle to get some highlights back from the grain
You'll want to cut out a picture of the Taj Mahal and paste it as a separate layer over the rice grain.
Use of Transform-Warp as Christoph has said is good advice, to make the image seem to curve around the grain and make it feel 3D.
Assuming the paint is to be somewhat opaque, one need not worry too much about maintaining the rice's texture. You could add some texture to the overlaid image afterward to help it seem more integrated. Thus you might be able to get away with just using a normal layer with slightly less than 100% opacity.
I might also suggest some very slight Bevel and possibly a tiny bit of Drop Shadow, with the light coming from the same direction as in the rice grain photo - to help the paint seem a little bit thick.
