This is an adaptation of the PS tutorial Create a Plasticine Text Effect in Adobe Photoshop. The result of this tutorial is shown below.
Align Object by @moc426 or Align Object by @xod
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.
