Honey Text Photoshop Tutorial (Transcript of Video)
In this tutorial we are going to see the styling of the text to create this realistic dripping translucent honey effect. And the styling is so flexible that you can reuse that and even you can paint with the simple basic brush, every stroke takes the styling and creates the same realistic effect. Now the best part is that I am using Photoshop CS6, but this styling is so basic that even you can use CS3 and onwards. As far as font is concerned, this font is called double feature, and it is available for free download at dafont.com.
So let’s start with the new layer and I am going to use the same file, so let me show you the dimensions which are not restricted, but its for your reference. Its 744 X 499Px with 72DPI, and let’s take the type tool, single click and type the text and the font size I have used, for this text is say CNTRL+A to select the text and the font size I have used is 150pts. Now let’s go to styling, the layer styles and let’s start with the gradient overlay and before this make the fill of this text zero, because we don’t need the fill. And therefore the text will be invisible but the moment we start using the styles you can see the text and now let’s click on the gradient and create a gradient to make the honey dripping effect. So what I have done, is used yellow occur or a little deeper yellow. I am sure it is more or less close to the yellow occur. And the other side I’ll use a colour called red orange, I am not going precisely to red orange but this is red orange, and you can refer to the hex value. So we’ll later change the other things of the gradient overlay, but build up the basic style and now let’s go to Bevel and Emboss and the values I have here is, in the bevel technique smooth, and the depth I wanted to change to 625, and the size I want to change to 7, and rest everything is perfectly alright except the gloss contour.
