Step 36Take the crystal image,drag it into Photoshop and extract it from it's background like we did before. Bring the Hue and Saturation menu and apply the next setting to give the crystals a matching blue hue:
Step 37Resize the crystal and place it on the coat.Duplicate this layer as needed to fill the edges:
Step 38Take the frost texture and place it on top of the crystals and erase with a soft eraser brush to blend:
Step 39Repeat the same for the other side.You may want to decrease again the Brightness and increase the Contrast on this side to match the light on the composition.
Step 40Duplicate a couple more times the frost texture and blend on some parts of the coat like the sleeves:
Step 41For the last touches we are going to create some nice flares to finish off our manipulation.Create a new layer on top of all the other layers and take the brush tool.Select a 100 pixel round brush with 0%hardness and 100%opacity.Now select two contrasting shades of blue (#0b2089,#12dec4) and paint two little circles with this colors and one little white:
Step 42Go to the menu Filter>Blur>Motion blur and apply the next settings:
Step 43Now duplicate this layer about 5 times or until you get something like this and merge them (Ctrl+E):
Step 44Apply a motion blur once again and change the layer blending mode to "Screen". Then go to the menu Filter>Sharpen>Sharpen and apply it 3 times. Shrink the flare a little bit and duplicate it 3 times.Place the duplicated flares on the brightest spots of the image (Lamps and ice reflections)
Step 45Duplicate again and rotate them 90° and arrange to for crosses where the light meets the flare:
Step 46Create a new layer and take a soft round brush of about 100 pixels wide and 70% opacity.With color white paint little hints of light on the crosses of the flares:
