    This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to view or download it This is an adaptation of the PS tutorial Create a Plasticine Text Effect in Adobe Photoshop. The result of this tutorial is shown below. Plugins required: TG Angle Align Object by @moc426 or Align Object by @xod AA's Asistant Cell Texture Emboss+ Neon Edges Bevel Object Font required: Insaniburger Create a New Image () 600x450 px. Set the Primary Color to 333F44 and fill () the image. Add a New layer () and run the Clouds () effect (Effects -> Render -> Clouds) with Scale 40 and Roughness 0,25: Apply the TG Angle effect (Effects -> Stylize -> TGAngle) with the settings as shown below: Set () the Layer Blending Mode to Overlay and set the Opacity to 15. Merge () both layers. We got a Board for modeling clay plasticine. Turn off the visibility of the layer. Add a New Layer (). Set Primary color to 65A033 and type () your text in Insaniburger font with size 108 and Bold () style. Place the text in the center using the Align Object effect (Effects -> Align Object or Effects -> Object -> Align Object). Run the Ripple effect (Effects -> Distort -> Ripple) with the settings as shown below: and we get this image: Duplicate () Layer 2 and select the text with the Magic Wand () tool and Global () Flood Mode. Apply the Cell Texture effect (Effects -> Render -> Cell Texture) to the top layer with the settings below: then apply the Emboss+ effect (Effects -> Stylize -> Emboss+) with Angle 0 and Height 2: and use Auto-Level () adjustment (Adjustments -> Auto-Level). Set () the Layer Blending Mode to Glow and set the Opacity to 128. Deselect () and apply AA's Assistant effect (Effects -> Object -> AA's Assistant) with default settings, repeat if necessary (Ctrl+F). Merge () both Layer 2. Duplicate () Layer 2 and make it Black and White (Ctrl+Shift+G). Apply AA's Assistant effect with default settings, repeat if necessary (Ctrl+F). Select the text with the Magic Wand () tool and run Neon Edges effect (Effects -> Ctylize -> Neon Edges) with Thickness 14 and Glow Intencity 50: Select the dark text with a Magic Wand () tool (Tolerance: 25-35%). Edit the selection if the contours of the letters are touching. Set the Primary color to A54F38 and fill () the text in the top Layer 2. Invert selection (Ctrl+I) and cut (Ctrl+X) the selected part of the image. Duplicate () top Layer 2 and select the text with the Magic Wand (). Apply the Cell Texture effect with Sell size 30 and Foreground color R=105, G=40, B= 25. Apply the Emboss+ effect with Angle 0 and Height 1. Set () the Layer Blend mode to Glow. Merge () the top two Layers 2. Apply the Bevel Object effect (Effects -> Object -> Bevel Object) with Depth 2: Deselect () and apply AA's Assistant effect. Repeat (Ctrl+F) AA's Assistant effect if necessary. Go to the bottom Layer 2 and apply the Bevel Object effect with Depth 3. (Apply AA's Assistant effect if necessary.) Turn on the Background layer and merge () all layers. And we are done. Of course our result is different from the result of PS tutorial, but I did not set myself the task to achieve full compliance. In my opinion, the last image looks more realistic.

    @ReMake, as soon as I saw this I thought of C4 and wanted to blow something up...🤣 Here's my take on your very good tutorial adaptation: Thank you for posting it!

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsforbusiness/end-of-windows-7-support This means no more updates, especially security updates. This will put it in the same place as XP and Vista, which nobody should be using anymore. I don't yet have a concrete plan for when Paint.NET will stop supporting Windows 7, which is when Windows 10 will become the minimum OS version*, but the clock is ticking. Maybe 1 year after, maybe 2 or even 3, it's not set in stone yet, but I'm not going to be able to support Windows 7 indefinitely. Please upgrade to Windows 10. I know a lot of you really like Windows 7, and that's a perfectly fine opinion, but supporting it does hold back Paint.NET's long-term progression and you have to know I can't support it indefinitely. Windows 7 has had a great run! It's currently 10 years old! Celebrate that, and then upgrade to 10 You've got time, so don't panic, but definitely include this in your planning. * let's just forget Windows 8/8.1 ever happened, just like we never say the word "Vista" out loud ...

    Grrrrr. The new one isn't the match that I thought it was. I declared victory too soon. Thanks to both of you for being on it. I am also going to download that other plugin and play with that too. I can't seem to get that plugin to install. I tried twice. The first time I renamed the file(and then .zip) The next time I left it as originally named as a random series of numbers(.zip) and neither are showing up. It has 3 DLL files in place- and nothing is showing up in PDN. I think that I have a darn-near one. I used a few tools such as Color Tint, Hue & Saturation and one of the 2 Curves plugins. A couple of them were doing too much to the gradient and I had to keep fiddling around. I really like the last one and I am going to test it out and see if truly is it or not. .
