Simple Glass Thermometer

thermometer glass only + thermometer liquid only = final thermometer image

     The thermometer shape was selected by merging 2 circular areas with a rectangular selection.  First the glass was created using KPT Gradient Designer for the stem and either KPT Glass Lens or a round gradient for the ends.  A circular region was copied from the stem and placed at the bottom of the stem to blend into the bulb.  The red indicator liquid was then created in a similar manner, then reduced in size, cropped, and added to the glass.  In this way, there is a difference between the highlights on the full and empty parts of the thermometer.
