This tutorial was originally posted on and moved for technical reasons. Ok, yesterday I posted that old gold pic I made and Dale asked for a tutorial so here we go… in case you forgot what am I talking about, we are going to make this text effect:

Next, type a word on your canvas. Make sure you use a very bold font. We used ‘Yikes!’ for this tutorial.

Go to Layer >> Layer Styles >> Blending Options, and apply the following settings:
