Photoshop help needed - turning full colour into 2 spot colour for printing

I have an image



that I need to turn into 2 spot colour for printing onto some mugs, the image (as you can see is mostly made up of pinks and blues, so this in itself shouldn't be too hard, I just have no clue as to where to start to do this.

Any help from the forums photoshop gurus appreciated (using photoshop CS btw)


cheers

Make new channels in your channels pallette, name them your spot colours and colour them visually to be close to your spot colours too. Then you can copy and paste the red channel (or any) into your new spot channel, and mess about with the curves or whatever to get the desired effect. When done save it as a DCS2 or psd format, or whatever the printer asks for. Dont know how easy it will be on that image though, but thats a start.
