Following our series of food text effects in Photoshop, here’s another on creating syrup text!
To make a syrup-style text in Elements, you can use a predefined layer style and the Dodge tool to create the effect.
Choose a handwriting font, type the text, and press F6. Click on Styles and choose Wow- Plastic.
Now drag or double-click on the Orange style to apply the effect.
Let’s fine-tune the effect. Go to Layer>Layer Style>Style Settings, and change the Angle to 120.
Uncheck the Drop Shadow and Outer Glow boxes, and select Inner Glow with the colour #f68a02.
Change the Size to 10px and Opacity to 80%. Set Bevel to 30 and click OK.
Now press F11. Ctrl/right-click on the fx icon, and choose Simplify Layer.
Grab the Dodge tool (O) and change the Range to Highlights, set Exposure to 50%, and start painting around the edges.
Go to Layer Styles again and apply the Shadows and Stroke styles to finish this syrup typeface.
