Liquid Gold Text Effect


This is probably the easiest tutoral ever. We are going to take a simple and well known gold effect, but because of we will use an artistic, hand-brushed font – Broken Stick (Download it free at dafont.com), this will give the letters a bit of a melting, liquid effect.

Free .PSD File of this tutorial is available for Lorelei Web Forum members.

So, we will be making this text effect in mere 4 steps.

Make a new canvas – 450*150 px. Fill it with the black colour. The background hue is optional, but this particular tutorial won’t look good on a light background, as the text’s shine will not be visible.

  1. Photoshop tutorial preview
  2. Type your word inside this black box, using the “Broken Stick” font.
  3. Go to Layer >> Layer Styles >> Options, and apply these settings:
  4. Use #eab000 for the Inner Shadow settings.
  5. Photoshop tutorial preview
  6. Outer Glow is what will give the gold text it’s shine. We used the #febf01 colour but you may want to choose a darker hue to give it less “pimpy” effect.
  7. Photoshop tutorial preview
  8. Use the “Roling Slope – Descending” gloss contour for shading effect.
  9. Photoshop tutorial preview
  10. Last but not least – Gradient Effect. This will give the text, what I call – “hot honey” (not ment erotically! 😀 ) effect. The colors are #000000 to #fcb904. Photoshop tutorial preview

Guess what? That’s it! The image is ready. Lorelei members can download the .PSD file for free.
