I liked the look of this fun text effect. I thought I’d give the tutorial a try.
This is the effect I should be able to make.
I’m not sure I’d necessarily recommend this tutorial since I think it contains a number of mistakes. The colour for the color overlay on the base layer is actually ca1818. Also the author didn’t mention that the fill on the layers needs to be set at 0% on both the Hard and Sugar layers. If you download the author’s PSD files you can work out how to do it.
Here is the version I made.
I think it turned out really well! It took a really long time though because of the mistakes in the tutorial. Here is how my layers palette looks in case you want to try it yourself.
