Step 2: Choose paint bucket tool and fill the Background Layer with black. Step 3: Create a new layer. Step 4: Choose a Bold font using the fonts menu. Then, change your font size to a size big enough to work, but small enough to fit in the image. I used because of the rounded edges: Step 5: Choose a light color such as: Hex: A5FFEB Click the More button (Top Right) to get to the Hex box. Step 6: Type your text on Layer 2: Make sure to have Layer 2 selected. \ Step 7: Use the Crystallized effect on the Text Layer. Effect is found in: Effects\Distort\Crystallize\ On this step, feel free to experiment with other inputs. I chose the cell size to be 2, because it is a really small and fine size. The quality should be 5 to make it fade, but feel free to experiment. It should look somewhat like this: Step 8: Select the Magic Wand tool from the tools window. Then, change the Flood Mode to Global (It should be at the top). Step 9: Select the Text by clicking on one of the letters: Step 10: Apply the Bevel Selection effect to your text: Effect is found in: Effects\Selection\Bevel Selection I recommend these settings, but as I said earlier, feel free to experiment! It should look somewhat like this: Step 11: Apply the Dents effect: Effect should be found in: Effects\Distort\Dents Feel free to experiment with these. This step has tons of outcomes.
