How to Create a Vintage Radio Poster in Photoshop
We’ll represent a small circle of the color #7B5D2A for the next new element with Ellipse Tool (U).
Using the Rectangular Marquee Tool (M), we need to select the zone along the line’s width and press DELETE button. This way we’ll cut the circle on small lines.
Cutting the circle, we may turn it over with Free Transform option and place it the same way as in the next picture. Place this layer under the layer containing the radio.
Make a copy of the last made layer and choose Free Transform option to make the copy smaller, placing it the same way as below. The layer will be situated under the radio’s layer too.
