Step 1

Open the original image of a slice of bread. File-Open. Using tool “Magnetic Lasso” (Magnetic Lasso Tool). At the top in the options panel, set the following values: Width: 17 pixels. (Width) contrast ratio: 5% (Contrast) Frequency: 100 (Frequency).

Click once on the edge of the slice of bread and smoothly move the cursor around the edge until you close the selection in a circle.

Do not worry about some areas that do not fall under the selection tool “Magnetic Lasso” (Magnetic Lasso Tool) In the future, we will expand the selection area with another tool.

After you click on the source selection point, create a selection outline.

Go to the extension of the selection, select the tool. “Quick selection” (Quick Selection Tool) At the top in the options bar, click on the icon “Add to Selected Area” (Add to selection). Select the size of the brush that suits you. Click once on the required area to expand the selection, and you may have to slightly move the mouse cursor.

After you have finished with the selection and the result you like, go to Editing – Copy (Edit-Copy) or just press the key combination (Ctrl + C).

Step 2

Create a new document File – Create (File-New) Width: 648 Height: 486. (You can use any other dimensions depending on your text length). In the color picker, set the foreground color: (# d9cfc5) background color: (# ad9d8d). Choose a tool “Gradient” (Gradient Tool) At the top in the options bar, click on the icon “Radial Gradient” (Radial Gradient). Left-click on the center of the canvas, and draw a line to one of the corners.

Paste the copied selection of a slice of bread, Editing – Paste (Edit – Paste.) Transform the image of a slice of bread to the size of your document, for this activate “Free Transformation” (Free Transform) or just press (Ctrl + T). To maintain proportions, hold down the Shift key.

Next, we get rid of unnecessary “holes” on a slice of bread. Choose a tool “Dot healing brush” (Spot Healing Brush Tool). Right-click and choose a brush size that suits you to eliminate holes on a slice of bread, and just cover the hole.

You may leave holes at the edges of a slice of bread, but they should not be in the center.

Double click on the layer with a slice of bread and apply the following parameters:

“Shadow“(Drop Shadow)
Color classification: (# 413b36)
Offset: 15 pixels. (Distance)
Size: 25 pixels. (Size)

Parameter “Inner Shadow” (Inner Shadow) we will add after we apply the text.

Step 3

On a layer of “Slice of Bread”, go to Image – Correction – Hue / Saturation. (Image> Adjustments> Hue / Saturation) set the “Saturation” values ​​to 15.

Go to Image – Correction – Curves (Image> Adjustments> Curves) Add a point in the middle with the following values: Input: 135 (Input) Output: 116 (Output) and one more point up the line, Input: 222 (Input) Output: 213 (Output).

Go to Image – Correction – Levels (Image> Adjustments> Levels). Change the value of the average slider (gamma) to 0.90.

Step 4

Choose a tool “Horizontal text” Using the “Hand of Sean” font, write any text or color: (# d19e31) the font size is 170 points. You can experiment with fonts and their size.

Left-click on the text layer and select “Rasterize the text” (Rasterize Type). This will allow us to deform the text. Choose a tool “Brush” (Brush Tool) set the foreground color to: (# d19e31).

If you want to make the text realistic, then go in Editing – Transforming – Warp (Edit> Transform> Warp) and warp the text as you need.

Choose a tool “Brush” (Brush Tool) standing on a rasterized layer with the text, start drawing honey stains. You must use different brush sizes for a variety of honey stains. The smudges on the bottom should end with droplets large in size. Take your time with execution so that later when we apply the styles you like the result.

Duplicate the rasterized text layer twice.

Step 5

For the original rasterized layer, set the blending mode “Line Dimmer” (lineal burn) fill level: 45% (Fill)

Double click on the original rasterized text layer with the left mouse button and apply the following parameters:

“Stamping“(Bevel and Emboss)
Depth: 358 (Depth)
Size: 8 (Size)
Uncheck “Global Light” (Use Global Light)
Angle: 117 (Angle)
Height: 69 (Altitude)
Check the box “Smoothing”
Backlight mode: (Highlight Mode) Opacity: 100% (Opacity)
Shadow Mode: (Shadow Mode) Color: (# b0a697) Opacity: 28% (Opacity)

“Contour”
Contour: Half Round
Check the box “Smoothing”

“Pattern Overlay”
Blend Mode: Soft Light
Opacity: 50% (Opacity)
Pattern: Cell (Cell)

“External Glow” (Outer Glow)
Blend Mode: Linear Burn
Color classification: (# f6e9cf)
Size: 20 pixels. (Size)

“Shadow“(Drop Shadow)
Blend mode: Linear Dimmer (Linear Brun)
Color classification: (# 806f4b)
Opacity: 65% (Opacity)
Uncheck the box “Global Adventure”
Offset: 3 pixels. (Distance)
Size: 3 pixels. (Size)

So we created the first layer of honey, if you are satisfied with the result, then you can stop at this step, but I will continue further to create depth and intensity. We will return to this layer later, after working with the other layers.

Step 6

Make the first copy of the layer with the rasterized text visible. Then change the blending mode to “Soft light” (Soft Light) and set the level “Fill” (Fill) up to 35%. Double-click the left mouse button and apply the following parameters:

“Stamping“(Bevel and Emboss)
Depth: 358 (Depth)
Size: 8 (Size)
Uncheck “Global Light” (Use Global Light)
Angle: 117 (Angle)
Height: 69 (Altitude)
Check the box “Smoothing”
Backlight mode: (Highlight Mode) Opacity: 100% (Opacity)
Shadow Mode: (Shadow Mode) Color: # b0a697) Opacity: 28% (Opacity)

“Circuit“(Contour)
Contour: Half Round
Check the box “Smoothing”

“Pattern Overlay”
Blend Mode: Soft Light
Opacity: 50% (Opacity)
Pattern: Cell (Cell)

You can turn off this layer and see how we added an extra effect.

Step 7

Make the second copy of the rasterized text layer visible. Set the blending mode “Soft light” (Soft Light). Set the “Fill” level to 10%. Double-click the left mouse button and apply the following parameters:

“Stamping“(Bevel and Emboss)
Depth: 358 (Depth)
Size: 8 (Size)
Uncheck “Global Light” (Use Global Light)
Angle: – 6 (Angle)
Height: 42 (Altitude)
Gloss contour: Cone – Asymmetrical
Check the box “Smoothing”
Backlight mode: (Highlight Mode) Overlay “Overlay” Opacity: 50% (Opacity)
Color classification: (# 997b4d)
Shadow Mode: (Shadow Mode) Color (# b0a697) Opacity: 28% (Opacity)

“Contour”
Contour: Cone (Cone)
Check the box “Smoothing”

And so we gave style to the last layer of honey. These last two layers with effects clearly improve the realism of our text than the first layer.

Step 8

Now select the tool “Blackout (Burn Tool) in the panel above set “Exposure” (Exposure) to 50% Range (Range): Mid Tones (Midtones). Go to the slice of bread layer and darken the bright areas behind the text.

Double-click with the left mouse button on the layer with a slice of bread and apply the parameter:

“Inner Shadow” (Inner Shadow)
Overlay Mode: Darken Basics (Color Burn)
Opacity: 35% (Opacity)
Offset: 0 pix. (Distance)
Size: 13 pixels. (Size)

This style will darken the edges a bit.

Duplicate the background layer by pressing the keys (Ctrl + J).

Double-click on the copy of the background layer and apply the parameter:

“Pattern Overlay” (Pattern Overlay)
Blend Mode: “Darken the Basics” (Color Burn)
Pattern: 29 (From a set of patterns that are presented in lesson resources)
Scale: 50% (Scale)

We have added a subtle pattern to the background.

Let’s go back to the original rasterized text layer, double-click it with the left mouse button and change it in the parameter “Shadow” level Opacity: 25% (Opacity)

This will soften the intensity of the shadow, but you can experiment with the values.

And in the final we will correct the overall yellow tint, for this we add a correction layer “Color Balance” (Color Balance).

Tone: Light (Highlights). Set the “Yellow / Blue” parameter to 10.

And so we finished the work. Now you can enjoy your creation. Hope you enjoyed the tutorial.
