Design a Glossy Candy Text Effect For Kids

This is a very tutorial for making colorful text, ideal for any kids decoration or web sites. we will be making this..

So, start off my creating a new canvas, 500*400, and fill it with the white color.

Using the “Fertigo” font, type any word you like, and choose the “bold” text.

Go to Layer Styles panel, and load the following settings..
Gradient from dark #5f001f to light bordo – #8e082c

and this is what we got so far..

Now to the more complicated part.

Make a new layer.
Select a brush, hard round, approximately 35px wide, but this fully depends on how thin is your font and how close are your letters.

Select any colour (preferably bright) and simple doodle over the letter.

Using the same layer, chose other bright colors and go over each and every letter like this.

    Hi Loreli,
    It’s a nice tutorial I actually enjoyed but would be great to see some more complex works like the text effects you used to do before.

    Will the fantasy art tutorials be revived… ever? 🙂

    Hi! I love this design & effect. I’m kinda new at this so I wanted to ask you first. I’m not sure what the rules are regarding using tutorials in my own site design. If I recreated this am I able to use it in my own design? Do I need to credit you? Or pay a license fee? Please let me know.
