Fry bacon and eggs in Photoshop

In this lesson you will learn how to create a 3D text effect in the form of food. This lesson will teach you how to apply food textures and the reflection of light on 3D letters.

Final image

Create a new document size 800x700px, Resolution (Resolution) 300px / inch. On a new layer, create an egg-shaped silhouette with a large round brush. The size of the form located below about 325x430px.

Take Eraser (Eraser) round shape with effects Dynamic / Scatterin (Dynamics of Form / Scattering). You can download brushes Eggs in the archive with materials for the lesson. Create bubbles along the edges of the shape, as shown below.

Then install Fill (Fill) 0% for this layer and apply the following layer styles.

Create a new layer and draw a shape similar to the previous one, but slightly smaller.

Specify Fill (Fill) 0% and apply the following layer styles.

Apply a gradient to the previous layer.

Create a yolk shape on a new layer using Ellipse tool (Ellipse)

To get a similar layer style effect, the size of the yolk should be 130x130px.

On a new layer above the previous one, create a large round shape.

Specify Fill (Fill) 0% and apply the following layer styles.

Take Brush (Brush) with a scattering effect, you can use the same brush as for creating the effect of bubbles on the first layer.

Apply the settings for this layer as shown below.

Create a black pepper effect with a dark brush with a slight scatter effect.

Brushes Eggs contain another brush that creates the effect of salt. Draw square dots.

To create a salt effect, apply the following salt styles.

With egg layers finished. You can group them and make them invisible for a while. Take Rounded rectangular tool (Rounded Rectangle) in Shape (Layer-shape) to create bacon stripes. I created three strips of bacon to use later or combine them into different letters and numbers. Make active the mode Add to shape area (Add to the shape area) to add the 2nd and 3rd strips on one layer. The total size of the three strips 300x450px.

Apply the following layer styles to get a grid in grayscale. This gray texture will be used to create a “wave” effect for bacon. Dark areas of the texture will be a deep part of the “wave”, and light relief detail.

Make the contour icon of the bacon shape active. Go to menu 3D > NewMeshFromGrayscale > Plane (3D> New Grid Gradation> Plane)

Here is the result of applying the 3D effect.

Below is the default 3D grid settings in grayscale.

Replace lighting kit (you will find it in the archive with materials for the lesson).

Click on the icon next to the current texture in Diffuse (Scattering) and select OpenTexture (Open texture)

The texture should open in a new document and it should look like the gray grid we created earlier.

Duplicate the bacon layer inside Diffuse (Scatter) document (which opened in a new window).

Apply new layer style effects to these duplicated layers (see screenshot below). You can see all the layer style settings in the bacon.psd file, also download the gradient (bacon.grd) and patterns (bacon.pat). All these files you will find in the archive with the materials for the lesson.

After applying all layer styles go to menu File> Save (File> Save). You will see that the result has changed in the main file automatically after saving the texture in Diffuse (Scattering).

Return to the saved texture Diffuse (Scattering), go to menu File> Save as (File> Save As) and save the new texture to a separate file (named Relief, eg).

Return to the main document. Open up 3DMaterialsPallete (3D materials panel).
Apply the following material settings for bacon. For Bump (Relief) load the same texture as for Diffuse (Scattering), we saved it earlier in Relief.

After applying all the 3D settings, select RayTracedFinal (Final ray tracing)

Rasterize the 3D layer

Then you can select and cut the parts of the rasterized bacon layer. Apply the overlay option Bevel and Embossed (Stamping) to emphasize the brilliance of the light side of the strip. Rotate them as needed.

To create a shadow effect from the top strip of bacon to the bottom, duplicate the top strip. Convert the lower copy to a clipping mask for the layer below (right-click the layer and select Create Clipping Mask (Create clipping mask)) Apply a shadow effect to the clipping mask.

To apply the shadow effect to the entire shape, duplicate all the bacon layers, merge the bottom duplicates and apply the layer style. DropShadow (Shadow) to the merged layer.

Create a scattering pepper effect with a scattering brush using the same method as with eggs. Apply the following blending options for the pepper layer.

Create a salt effect using the same instructions as the eggs.

Here are the eggs and bacon after applying all the settings

And here is the result!
