Polished Ceramics / Colored Glass Text Effect

Recommended Posts

Interesting as in...

I find that using alpha-displacement gives a more glassy appearance. Thanks to xmario's glass orb tutorial, I had been using Gaussian blur to make the transparent not completely uniform, yet giving it the appearance of transparency. Median was used once, and the white highlight were elliptical then deleted with the text selected, and blurred around 50 pixels, much better than using the transparent gradients.

Understand that when you give the Copy command there is no visible result.

It merely stores the Text Mask in the Windows clipboard.

The clipboard image is then used by the Alpha Mask plugin at Step 9.

Hello, i am a new user to Paint.NET forums but i have previously used Paint.NET a couple of years back.

I am 14 and am still pretty new to Paint.NET and would like to know how to "select all, and copy."

Welcome!

Step eight: Invert the colors of the TextMask layer so it is white. Make a new layer under it and fill it with black. Merge TextMask onto the black layer, select all, and copy. You can then delete the layer:

1. select all = Ctrl + A or = menu edit/select all

2. copy = Ctrl + C = menu edit/copy = :Copy: in the tool bar.

I thought my result here might go well with LJXD tut result, since both have a plasticy look to me. I'm not sure they work together, but here it is.

Sorry for the noob question, but I'm a bit stuck on step 8 where it says "Invert the colors of the TextMask layer so it is white". How exactly do we do that? Thanks in advance.
