The images, including filter settings, are much clearer in the pdf for this quick tutorial.


GimpTurkey messaged me with an enquiry about how I had created this look on a recent custom font:

Step 1: Use Custom Font FaceMaker
Add the decorative face to a plain custom font base. It is probably best to choose a pattern with areas of high contrast.

Step 2: Use Custom Font Metallic Effects
Apply a gold metal finish without any emboss.

Step 4: Use Custom Font Outer Glow
Apply a distressed outer glow in the lightest glow shade you want to use.
If you have no kerning paths then you will not need to set the modify kerning option.

Step 5 (Optional): Use Custom Font Outer Glow
Repeat the glow effect if necessary (remember to re-set ‘Increase character layer size’ to zero).

Thank you for those instructions, Skinnyhouse! I saw that font and thought it was beautiful. I figured you used the glow filter but did not try it out yet. Now you have done all the work for me ! Thanks again.
