How to Design A Hot Golden Text With Disintegration Effect In Photoshop.


In this Photoshop tutorial, I will show you the steps I took to Design this Hot, Golden Text with Disintegration Effect in Photoshop. We will mainly use the selection tool and layer mask to perform some texturing for the letters, and use image adjustment tools to fine-tune the effect.

This is a beginner to intermediate level tutorial, have a try!

To complete this tutorial, you will need the following stocks:



Step 1

Create a new document sized 1280px * 468px with black background. We will start by preparing some background texture: Load the background texture image into Photoshop and select a piece from it, copy and paste the selection onto our document, resize to fit the canvas height and width:

Use a soft eraser with 50% flow and opacity, erase some parts of the texture as shown below:

Add the following 2 adjustment layers on top:

and here is the effect so far for the background texture:

Step 2

Use the font we downlaoded, type some letters ove the canvas:

Select the text:

Then move the selection over to the gold texture:

Copy and paste the gold texture over to our document, then turn off the original text layer:

Apply the following Levels adjustment to this gold texture layer to adjust it contrast a bit:

Then we want to duplicate this gold texture layer once, then flip it vertically:

Use the free transform tool to perspective it as shown below:

and use a soft eraser to fade the edge as shown below:

Step 3

We will have some variation for the gold onto text. Go back to the gold texture, repeat the method describe in step 2 to get one more gold texture, place this new layer above the previous gold texture layer:

Apply the following layer mask on this new gold layer to hide some portions of it:

Add the following 3 adjustment layers as clipping masks to this new gold texture layer:

Black and white

Levels

Curves

and here is the effect so far:

Step 4

We will add some disintegration effect into the text. Here is a quick way to do this. We will use the water brushes we downloaded, create a new layer on the golden texture image, and paint some water splashes on it:

Then, we will hold down the Ctrl key, and left click on the thumbnail image of this brush layer on the layer palette:

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

Go back to the background layer and Ctrl + C to copy, then paste this over to our text document, resize it a bit to fit the size:

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

Duplicate this splash layer a few times and add them to different parts of the text:

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

We can add some cloud via the Cloud Filter over the text, as shown below:

Step 5

Were almost done! For some final effects, I flatten the image, then duplicate the background layer and apply the following Chrome filter via Filter > Sketch > Chrome, with the following settings:

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

Set this Chrome Filtered layer blending mode to screen, reduce the layer opacity to 60%.

Apply the following selective color adjustment layer to fine-tune the colour combination a bit:

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

and here is the final effect:
