Great Mixed Color Effect using Photoshop
Under Photoshop Tutorial, Text Effect
For any dark background, it is good to be applied mixed color effect to stand out your text. The major trick is used Photoshop brushes to add reflection on each letter and then further adjusted in blend mode.
It uses a little Illustrator for the text and a lot of Photoshop to burn up the screen! Although it looks complicated the process is actually very straight forward. I used only three or four filters, brushes and of course the Layer Styles. As always, the idea is to play around with Photoshop to get your own unique results.
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!
