My initial idea was to create text made of bubbles, but that would not have been possible without Rononour's fantastic 'Pack sprites' G'MIC filter.

Long before i started this blog, i posted a couple of layer effects tutorials on Gimpchat, teaching the basics like Glows and Inner Shadows.
I experimented a lot with the steps and was about to write another tutorial by the name of 'Finer Glows' but then i decided to no longer post tutorials on GC and started this blog.
The xcf for my Glow experiments was still on my desktop and a few days ago i had another look at it.
I wasnt sure how to distill my reseach into a tutorial but the layered glows were the most obvious result, so i played around and made the 'Tronic Layering' piece.
What follows is a tutorial that will present the basic workflow for this texteffect.
