Creating the Shimmer Effect
Using the burred vertical line (which I call a flash) created a shimmering effect of gentle folds. It was achieved by adding a series of transparent layers of vertical flashes, positioned above the background layer. Experimenting with each of the blending modes, I found 70% hard light was the ideal setting. When viewed large the effect isn’t all that obvious. When seen from a distance, or scaled smaller you can see the soft folded shimmery effect.
