anyone seen the rivets on the lotus europa and wondered how it was done?

this is how:

step one get a base, i used this smart because of its widened fenders

step two use the brush tool at size 3px and 0% hardness in white and then make dots where you want the rivets

then duplicate the layer and move it a tad up and then a tad left, to make it black go image, adjustments and then brightness/contrast to 0 until it goes black it took me 3 times
