Bevel Text ~ 3

Bevel Lesson 3

The first font we will use will be a chunky one.  This is important for this bevel look.  I'm going to use Traffic (attached at bottom).

This time I'd like you to choose a gold pattern for your foreground and a gradient of choice for your background.  Font size:  100 (if this is too large then 72)*, Line width: 1, Floating checked, Antialias checked.

*note: we will be resizing later

You should have something like this:

   

Now we will apply some EyeCandy 3 Swirl effect with these settings:  Whirlpool Spacing: 5, Smear Length: 4, Twist: 42, Streak Detail: 22, Warp: unchecked, Smooth: checked.

You should have something like this:

  

Apply beveling with these settings:  Smoothness 15, Depth: 7, Ambience: 0, Shininess: 50, Angle: 211, Intensity 25, Elevation: 55, Width: 20, Bevel: #2 (round)

You should now have something like this:

 

Now we will apply the glass! 

Go to EyeCandy 3.1 (or whichever) and use these settings:

Bevel Width: 8, Bevel shape: Button, Flaw Spacing: 30, Flaw Thickness: 8, Opacity: 20, Refraction: 10, Color: White, Highlight Brightness: 100, H Sharpness: 40, Direction: 135, Inclination: 45. 

note: you can save your settings by clicking on the pencil icon

You should end up with something like this:

 

Kinda looks like a tumbled and polished stone doesn't it?  Add drop shadow & a tube to your liking.  Don't forget to resize!

 

**********************

With the thin fonts you will apply the same glass setting but doing so twice or even three times.  No beveling necessary.

Add a little tube...or not...and you should have a nice little tag for yourself or a friend.

Hope you enjoyed this little lesson in beveling!  Shall we do gold next? 

Hugs!!!!
