In this tut we are going to learn how to texture with layer modes by using clipping masks to constrain the visibility of one layer to that of the layer beneath. In a clipping mask, the bottom most layer acts as a mask for the layers above it. The layers in the group clip to the opaque areas of the base layer and don’t show over the transparent areas of the base layer.
Roll Over Image.
To remove a single layer from the clipping mask, you can simply Alt-click the line between the two layers in the Layers panel. Or you can select the layer and choose Layer➪Release Clipping Mask. Both commands remove the selected layer and any layers above it from the clipping mask.
To ungroup all the layers in the clipping mask, select the clipped layer and choose Layer➪Release Clipping Mask. You can also apply clipping masks to adjustment and fill layers. If you clip between a regular layer and an adjustment layer, or a regular layer and a fill layer, the adjustment or fill layer affects only the pixels of the adjacent underlying layer, rather than all the underlying layers.

Great post! Just wanted to let you know you have a new subscriber- me!
@Komtur... after you do copy merged you need to paste the selection by hitting CTRL+V or go to Edit-Paste.
Now the selection is Pasted in a new layer, next follow the other steps and you should be able to complete the effect.
It won't works for me. I do step 3 and 4 and after copy merged a new extracted layer won't appear:(. Someone know why?
