Create a Spiral Telephone Cord From Scratch With Photoshop
Create a new layer called “Cord Test” and select the Smudge Tool with the setting shown below. Now, go to the Paths Panel and select the path we created in step 2. Right Click and select Stroke Path using the Smudge Tool. As you can see, the colors from the box appear to be ‘extruded’ along the path. We can now use this color test to help us create the actual cord.
