Before using your pen tool change the settings of your Paint brush tool to a 17px Hard round brush. Use your pen tool to create the path at the top of the jar. Change the foreground color to #A87540. Create your path and right click the path and select 'Stroke Path'. Make another line.

Step 21

Use your smudge tool to smooth out the dots. I set my smudge tool to 33% with a strength of 81%. Change the opacity of this layer to 30%

Step 22

Find your 'jar' layer and duplicate it (right click layer then duplicate). Change the Color Overlay and make the stroke invisible by clicking the eye icon next to the stroke layer. Change the opacity of this layer to 14%. Move it a few pixels to the left.

Step 23

Now we're finished with the jar, time to start on one of the peanuts. Remember to create a new folder for the 1st peanut and place it beneath the jar folder. Create a new layer and with your pen tool create the shape of the peanut. Right click the path and make a selection from it and fill it with #b2833b
