In this quick Photoshop tutorial, we will explain how to create text from cookies using layer styles and textures in Photoshop. Let’s start!

Source materials:

Step 1

First create a new PSD document with dimensions 1000×400 pixels and with a resolution of 72 pixels per inch. Now open the free wooden table texture, copy and paste it into the newly created document. Using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl/Cmd+T (transform) change the size of the texture until you are happy with the result.

Step 2

It’s time to create a cookie texture. Open the chocolate chip cookie texture in Photoshop. We go to Edit> Define Texture … (Edit> Define Pattern …), call it “Cookie Texture” and click OK. Close this document and go back to the working one that was created in the first step.

Step 3

Write the text using the font to your taste. I wrote the word “Cookies” (“Cookie”) font Arial Black 220 pt.

Step 4

Now we will apply layer styles! Use the settings shown below. Let’s start with the texture of the cookie – double click on the text layer to open the layer styles. Apply style Texture Overlay (Pattern Overlay), Here we select the texture of the cookie that was created in the second step.

Texture Overlay: Blend mode – Normal, Opacity 100, Scale 50, snap to layer.

Next style – Embossing (Bevel and Emboss), To add a 3D effect to the amount of text.

Stamping: Style – Internal bevel, Method – Smooth, Depth 175, Direction Up, Size 16, Softening 0, Angle 110, Height 60, Backlight Mode – Normal, Opacity 65, Shadow Mode – Normal, Opacity 80.

Now apply Inner Shadow, to add realism.

Inner Shadow: Blend Mode – Multiply, Opacity 100, Angle -63, Offset 7, Contrast 0, Size 13.

Now style Shadow (Drop Shadow), To make the text with the background more realistic.

Shadow: Blend Mode – Multiply, Opacity 80, Angle 120, Use Global Illumination, Offset 5, Span 10, Size 10.

Now External glow (Outer Glow), to darken the corners.

External glow: The blend mode is Normal, Opacity 75, Noise 0, Color # 3e1a00, Soft Method, Swipe 0, Size 2.

Inner Glow will help make cookies brighter.

Internal luminescence: Blend Mode – Base Brightening, Opacity 25, Noise 0, Color #ffffff, Soft Method, Source At Edges, Contrast 0, Size 20.

Now choose the style Texture Embossed to make the cookies realistic, giving it a rough and grungy look.

Texture: Scale 100, Depth -30, Link to layer.

Step 5

Now you need to make the text uneven, so that it looks like a cookie. Make the text layer active, right-click on it and select Rasterize the layer (Rasterize Layer). Take the tool Eraser (Erasertool), set a brush size of 13, a stiffness of 100. Erase text around the edges until you are satisfied with the result.

Note of translator. This step can also be performed using a layer mask. Black brush to hide unwanted areas by drawing on the layer mask. If the result is not satisfactory, you can return visibility to some places using a white brush.

Step 6

Now we will make blotches of chocolate. Create a new layer – Layer> New> Layer (Layer> New> Layer). Double click on the layer to bring up styles.

Shadow: Blend Mode – Multiply, Opacity 75, Angle 120, Use Global Illumination, Offset 2, Swipe 0, Size 2.

External glow: The blend mode is Normal, Opacity 85, Noise 0, Soft Method, Span 0, Size 4, Range 50.

Stamping: Inner Bevel Style, Smooth Method, Depth 100, Direction Up, Size 8, Softening 0, Angle 120, Use Global Illumination, Height 30, Backlight Mode – Replace with Light, Opacity 60, Shadow Mode – Multiplication, Opacity 75.

Texture: Scale 100, Depth +50, Link to layer. (I use the standard texture in Photoshop – Atlas, 128 by 128 pixels, in grayscale mode).

Gradient overlay: Blend Mode – Multiply, Opacity 75, Linear Style, Angle 90, Scale 100.

Color overlay: Blend Mode Normal, Opacity 100.

Step 7

Now draw the chocolate blotches on the cookies with a solid round brushes (brush).
