3D Textured Text Effect

Step 14

To add a bit of finishing touch, I added Outer Glow to the Vector Smart Object layer, as shown.


And, that’s how my Layers palette in end & final image looks like.



Here, is a another example of image, I made with the same technique.


To take it further, play & experiment with various textures, the blending modes, also changing the various Adjustments options like Invert, Posterize, Hue/Saturations settings etc. gives the different results. You can also make the text look grungy or rusty using grunge textures, its just the matter of exploring the powers of Photoshop & tapping your creativity!
