For this weekend's challenge I bring you an old kettle (actually 3D model of an old kettle). How will you use it?

* Anyone, and everyone, is welcome to have a go, whether you are a complete beginner or a Photoshop expert.
* There are no prizes apart from the chance to practice, show off, or bring a bit of humour and fun. Don't be shy, join in and have a go!

This is beautiful, Dave. I love the texture, coloring, and the elephant trunk spout. 😊
It was a very quick model and render this week. The surface texture is from Adobe Substance Painter.
Haha - the pot calling the kettle, I like it 🙂
I love your image composite!
You did an amazing job with your 3D work.
While I am not a 3D person, that Phalaenopsis Orchid definitely got my attention.
I have been a lifetime passionate gardener LONG before Adobe was created.
it is a nice flower... wish I could grow them here
What is the hindrance, Graham?
the big ball in the sky tends to cook them here
I decided to try and recreate Dave's wonderful render and give a nice new shiny surface. I can't render it on my work PC cause it's just to old and would more than likely kill it 😉 so it's only a screenshot
Nice job Ged, I would drink the water out of that one 🙂
Very nice render, Dave! I wish you could make money from it! 😊
Now that is just what I need. A money kettle 🙂
Dave, amazing work as always!
I think I will stick with my own kettle to start the morning. 😀
A perfect setting - it says so on the oven 🙂
A really nice job kp. The perspective matches perfectly, and the shading is pretty damn good as well. I stopped on my way into a DIY store today to look at a poster sized shed advert that showed an obviously Photoshopped quad bike bursting out of the shed. It was not a terrible job, but anyone who posts to the SFTW threads would know it was a composite. I doubt many people, if any, would say the same thing about your image.
Trevor, thank your complimentary reply.
Your Photoshop skill level continues to far exceed mine.
LONG AGO . . . I was so into Photoshop. Now days, I hardly turn on.
SFTW is a fun excuse to revisit Photoshop once again.
Data testing the aphorism that a watched pot never boils
Very good Trevor 🙂
Haha - miracles would need to happen ! 🙂
I'm not sure what you have boiled in there Jacob but I'm not drinking it 🙂
