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 (FileNew.png) 600x450 px. Set the Primary Color to 333F44 and fill (Paint-Bucket.png) the image.

Add a New layer (Add-New-Layer.png) and run the Clouds (Clouds-Effect.png) 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 (Properties.png) the Layer Blending Mode to Overlay and set the Opacity to 15.

Merge (Merge-Layer-Down.png) both layers. We got a Board for modeling clay plasticine.

Turn off the visibility of the layer.

 

Add a New Layer (Add-New-Layer.png). Set Primary color to 65A033 and type (TextTool.png) your text in Insaniburger font with size 108 and Bold (:FontStyleBold:) 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 (Duplicate-Layer.png) Layer 2 and select the text with the Magic Wand (Magic-Wand-Tool.png) tool and Global (Flood-Mode-Global.png) 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 (Auto-Level.png) adjustment (Adjustments -> Auto-Level). Set (Properties.png) the Layer Blending Mode to Glow and set the Opacity to 128.

Deselect (Deselect-Icon.png) and apply AA's Assistant effect (Effects -> Object -> AA's Assistant) with default settings, repeat if necessary (Ctrl+F). Merge (Merge-Layer-Down.png) both Layer 2.

 

Duplicate (Duplicate-Layer.png) 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 (Magic-Wand-Tool.png) 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 (Magic-Wand-Tool.png) tool (Tolerance: 25-35%). Edit the selection if the contours of the letters are touching.
Set the Primary color to A54F38 and fill (Paint-Bucket.png) the text in the top Layer 2.

 

Red-Text-selected.png

 

Invert selection (Ctrl+I) and cut (Ctrl+X) the selected part of the image. 

 

Duplicate (Duplicate-Layer.png) top Layer 2 and select the text with the Magic Wand (Magic-Wand-Tool.png). 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 (Properties.png) the Layer Blend mode to Glow. Merge (Merge-Layer-Down.png) the top two Layers 2. Apply the Bevel Object effect (Effects -> Object -> Bevel Object) with Depth 2:

 

Bevel-Object.png

 

Deselect (Deselect-Icon.png) 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 (Merge-Layer-Down.png) 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.

Thank you very much @ReMake and what great use of those Plugins, some of which I'd forgotten about :)

One of those tutorials with a lot of scope ... a few ideas brewing but the body isn't willing to play ball just yet
