Step 2 Honeycomb
First we will create the honeycomb, create a new layer and name it ‘honeycomb’. First grab your ‘custom shape tool’ (U) and find the hexagon shape, place it on your canvas. Make sure the color of the shape is #ffcb05.
Step 3 Layer Styles
Add these layer styles by double clicking your ‘honeycomb’ layer.
Step 4 Highlights
Now we will make the honeycomb shine and glisten. Create a new layer name it ‘highlight’. Get your Paint Brush Tool (74 px soft round brush #FFFFFF) and place the brush in the center of the honeycomb.
Change this layer to Overlay
Create a New layer and name it ‘highlight 2′. Then grab a 7px soft round brush #FFFFFF and make a marking like so.
Grab your Smudge tool (22px soft round brush) and smooth out the highlight on both sides. The way I did it was that I started in the middle of the line and went outwards.
Change this layers Opacity to 57%
Also in this tutorial I have where there seems to be that the honeycomb is empty. To achieve this effect repeat steps 2&3 but add the layer style Satin.
Next, create a new layer and grab your paint brush tool (61px #000000) place it in the middle of the honeycomb.
Change this layer to Color Burn with an Opacity of 71%
