In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a scorched logo engraving effect on a wooden surface. For this effect you can use any logo, shape or text. Engraving can be edited and customized to your taste.
First you need to choose your favorite wood texture. I will use the texture of an old faded tree, which can be taken in the archive.
Materials for the lesson:
Add a few adjustment layers to make the wood even older. First add Brightness / Contrast (Brightness / Contrast), and then Hue / Saturation (Color tone /Saturation ).
Add to the work of our logo. I will use the retro style logo I created myself. You can download it here. This is a fully editable PSD file. You can also choose one of these amazing retro signs and customize to your taste.
Open the psd-file with the logo in Photoshop and place it into the work above the tree texture layer. Convert all layers of the logo into a smart object.
Our logo and texture have different viewing angles. Go to menu Edit> Transform> Distort (Edit-Transform-Distort) and change the perspective of the logo.
Now, all you have to do is add the following layer styles to create an engraving effect, as well as a burnt wood effect.
