Click here to view or download it Here's the next installment in my 'Sewing' series. Adapted from the PS tutorial found here. The PS tutorial had a pre-made, pre-colored texture supplied. I will show you how to make your own. I simplified this as much as possible. This took me over 2 months to figure everything out. You will need these plugins: Clouds (built-in) Motion Blur (built-in) Sharpen+ Dragan Effect The Texture ----------------- we will be making this: Spoiler 1) Open new canvas, 3520 x 2300, resolution 120 2) Set primary color 64,64,64 (404040), secondary color 160,160,160 (A0A0A0) 3) Render --> Clouds 360, 1.00 4) Blurs --> Motion Blur 45.00, 160 5) Photo --> Sharpen+ Amount 500, Radius 12, leave everything else at default 6) Photo --> Sharpen+ Amount 500, Radius 2, leave everything else at default 7) Artistic --> Dragan Effect 10, 0 You should see this on your canvas: 😎 New transparent layer on top, change blend mode to Color Dodge 9) Brush size 900 – Hardness 0% - Color 64,64,64, make (2) two highlight lines diagonally You should now see this on your canvas: 10) Merge layer down and save as png Now you have your base texture file. To add color, open png file and add a new transparent layer on top. Set blend mode to multiply and use the paint bucket to fill the new layer with the color of your choice. In our tutorial, we will be using color 00FFBF. Then, Adjustments --> Brightness/Contrast, Brightness (-15), Contrast 0. Merge layers down and save as png. Now you have a colored version of your texture! 1 1 Now, on to the application. I am using the PS tutorial example, which is text. This can be used on any shape as well. Download this font: AR Julian. We will be making this: Spoiler 1) Open a transparent canvas 2800 x 1920 2) Select a shape or make some text on the transparent background; color it white We are going to use the font AR Julian, 600pt, bold, center it on the canvas 3) Duplicate the layer 2 times, name layers 1, 2 & 3, keeping 1 on the bottom 4) On Layer 1, use the following: a. Set layer to Multiply b. Effects --> Object --> Inner Shadow at -60, 7, 2, .50, black c. Effects --> Object --> Drop Shadow at 0, -2, 0, 1, 102, black 5) On Layer 2, use the following: a. Set layer to Multiply b. Effects --> Object --> Inner Shadow at 110, 20, 9, .60, black c. Effects --> Object --> Bevel Object (BB’s) at 12, white, black, .55 6) On Layer 3, use the following: a. Set layer to Multiply b. Effects --> Object --> Drop Shadow at 2, 0, 2, 0, 191, black 7) Open your pre-colored silk texture in PDN a. Select all (Ctrl+A) b. Copy (Ctrl+C) to the clipboard 😎 Add a new transparent layer at the bottom a. Make selection with Magic Wand at 69% from layer 3, invert, move back to your bottom transparent layer, then Effects, Fill, From Clipboard your chosen color of ‘silk’, play with the ‘placement’ controls if you wish. Name layer ‘Texture’ 9) You can also make an outline of your letters on another new transparent canvas. Use layer 3, again, as your outline guide, color 00FFBF, and make a 1px outline. Insert this new layer between layers 1 & 2. 10) You can finish up any way you prefer. I chose a blue denim texture for my background, cut out an oval and applied one of my ‘stitches’ with TR’s Paste Frame. A couple more examples of what you can do with this technique: I hoped you enjoyed this tutorial! 6 4 Quote My Art Gallery | My Shape Packs | ShapeMaker Mini Tut | Air Bubble Stained Glass Chrome Text with Reflections | Porcelain Text w/ Variegated Coloring | Realistic Knit PatternOpalescent Stained Glass | Frosted Snowman Cookie | Leather Texture | Plastic Text | Silk Embroidery Visit my Personal Website "Never, ever lose your sense of humor - you'll live longer" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
