Create an Excellent Icy Text in Photoshop Tutorial
Under Photoshop Tutorial, Text Effect
There are various text effects. Some of them are very special. As they are trying to simulate something such as fire & water etc. In this tutorial, it is going to present you how to create an excellent icy text.
It is not very common to use purple as a main color for your text because you may find the color to be deep which may not be able to attract your reader. However, if you add a little bit of works on your text such as shiny and glossy effect. The story would be completely different.
In this tutorial we are going to take some very basic principles of light and shade to make a rather impressive looking text effect. Finally we duplicate the top lighting layer one more time and set it to opacity, then click the Add Layer Mask button on the layers palette again and draw a linear white to black gradient from top left to bottom right. This makes the extra lighting layer fade off as it goes down right.
In this tutorial, it will show you how to make 6 different effects using just layer styles. But, we just focus on the golden text. It uses an Outer Bevel on top of a fat Stroke to create the highlights. Then when we place the other layer on top they come together to make a lovely gold effect!
