In this tutorial, we’ll learn how to create an elegant bronze text effect in Photoshop. This simple yet sophisticated text effect is very easy to create and you will be done with it in just a couple of minutes.
To create an elegant bronze text effect, you’ll need:
- Photoshop CC (Any recent version of Photoshop should work)
- Old London font
- Iron Grip pattern
- Plank texture
- Gold gradients
- Floral and swirl design
Create a new document of 1200 x 800px and set its Resolution to 200. Set #412a24 as the background color and #67402c as the foreground color. Then, grab the Gradient Tool, select the Foreground to Background gradient, choose the Radial Gradient option, and draw the gradient by clicking and dragging from the top right corner to the bottom left.
Place the plank texture on top of the background layer and change its blending mode to Multiply.
We will now add a vignette effect to the texture by double-clicking on the texture layer and applying the following Gradient Overlay effect.
Write your text using the Old London font, #8a623b color and 100pt size.
Duplicate the text layer and change the duplicate layer’s Fill value to 0.
We will now make the main textured part of the text by double-clicking on the original text layer and applying the layer styles shown below.
Set the Highlight Mode’s color to #dedede and Shadow Mode’s color to #171514.
Set Ring as the Contour.
Place Iron Grip as the pattern.
Use Gold Label 230w as the gradient.
Set #74675b as the color.
Use Gold 24k – 20L as the gradient.
Now, double-click on the duplicate text layer and apply the layer styles shown below.
Use Cone as the Gloss Contour.
Finally, use any of the brushes from the floral and swirl design pack, and apply the same layer styles to them.
And we’re done! The elegant bronze text effect tutorial is now complete!
