0

This Adobe Photoshop Tutorial will teach users with a beginner’s knowledge of Adobe Photoshop how to make their text appear metallic in colour, using just two layers and a few simple effects.


Create a Background

1) Begin by filling your background with a medium grey (my colour #8D8D8D).

2) Create your first layer and select the brush tool. The keyboard shortcut for this is <SHIFT> & <B>. You need to make sure that your brush is set to soft and has a large diameter. Select the colour white (#ffffff).

3) Now Paint a soft white circle in the middle of the canvas. Next grab the edges of this layer and pull them out to give your background the appearance below.
