same old

Revisited my Aluminium tutorial and tried to take it one step further with filtering and colour-curves.
Doesnt work on all parts (the 'a' and 'b' look crap), but if you click on the image and open in a new tab, you can see all the detail that i really like in its full 1600x1600px glory.

Street Glitz

Anyone remember ChrisF's Hollywood Glamour texteffect ?


Well that was fun, because i was so fascinated by Chris' excellent result that i wanted to create something similar and one of my experiments was the green glittery Phase2 text.


Last week i finally found the lost xcf on my computer and thought i could write a tutorial.
Unfortunately i cant remember how i did the glitter, which is funny because my techniques are pretty samey and predictable.

So i will present a variation of the Phase2 effect today.

Text with a soul

Tried to put text on a path that is not a circle, again using ofnuts 'Text along path' plug-in.
Trying to find the right values for size was a bit tedious, because it involved a lot of trial and error, but the result was worth it.
