4.Duplicate the base and set it on top of everything. Sharpen the icon and lower the opacity. I typically set mine to 50%

5.Add some kind of brush vertically on the icon. I used one from my_givenchy.

6.Then I added some random shapes using various colors taken from the icon itself, added text (Sylfaen, which I rotated slightly) and viola!

The coloring on this tutorial works very well for images with many white spaces as well as for if you wish to brighten up an image slightly. Here are some examples of icons I've made using the coloring from this tutorial.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic - I like how the coloring doesn't turn the white in the image into some ugly brown shade like most tutorials do.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic - This is with a black and white image with a round pink brush set to screen.

I'd imagine that after you duplicate, you sharpen the duplicate and keep the layer mode on Normal but lower the opacity of the layer mode to 50%.

Someone else explained it. But let me know if it still doesn't make sense.
