Perfect Gold Text Effect in Photoshop
Under Photoshop Tutorial, Text Effect
Gold and glass effects are the most difficult effects to achieve in Photoshop, even more when they are combined. So, this tutorial will teach you how to create a combined gold and glass text effect using quick and easy tips with layer styles in Photoshop.
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.
To design style text effects, it can be very easy. Even you use some simple photoshop photo combination effects, which can also form a good style text. In this tutorial, the designer just combined some images as a background of the 3D text image to form a integrated picture.
In this tutorial we’ll be creating a smokey night effect on text to give it an eerie supernatural sort of feel. Finally to give it a more eerie feel I added a layer above all the others and with a large brush painted some green on top, then set the layer blending mode to to make it so that the image is a blue-green colouring.
To make your 3D text effect to be outstanding, you have to figure out a new idea to make it to be unusual. Using lighting and some pattern as a background, they can drive the whole scene to be extraordinary. Of course, you can think of something new to apply.
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!
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.
