Reflective Liquid Type
Tutorials on creating metal type abound online, as do variations on simple liquid effects. Most arefairly short, offering a good foundation for the reader on how certain effects are achieved but fail totake that extra step (or few steps) to make the piece really shine. Once you have an idea of howdifferent techniques fit together in a piece, it is fairly easy to combine, say, the process to createmetal and the process to create liquid to create something that exists in both sides of the FX map.
Create a new image with the following attributes:
Width: 11 inches
Height: 11 inches
Resolution: 300 ppi, 8 or 16 bit
Background Color: White
Since the desired effect is toappear liquefied, a font that appears to have been madewith a crayon or round brush will work perfectly. Select theType tool and open the Character palette from the Optionsbar. The font I’ve chosen is called ‘WallowHmkBold’… if you donot have this installed on your system just use the font of yourchoice. The attributes for the characters are seen below:
Note that the color is gray in the #666666 range and NOT starkblack.Type a word across the face of the image.
 Rasterize the type layer, then paint a few additional gray dots around the type.
Open the Channels palette and duplicate a channel… theBlue channel will work fine. Go to Image>Adjustments>Invert.
Open the Filter menu and select Blur>Gaussian Blur. First, blur thechannel at a 25 pixel radius. Blur the channel again at a radius of 15 pixels.
Turn off the Blue copy channel, but don’t delete it…you’ll need it in a moment or two.
