Text on Sand in Photoshop

Posted on 16th March 2018
For this Tutorial, we will use the image of sand and “Norquay” Font from Fontbundles.net (https://fontbundles.net/free-fonts/norquay-hand-drawn-font).

1 - In Photoshop open the image you chose as “Background”.



2 - Select the “Type Tool” (T), choose your font (we used Norquay) or draw some with a hard brush. Use black as “Fill” color.



3 - Change the “Bending Mode” of your text layer to “Soft Light”.



4 - Double-click on your text and apply the following “Layer Styles”:

Bevel & Emboss: (Gloss Contour: Cone - Inverted)



Texture: (Spiky Brush)







Inner Shadow:



5 - Select the “Brush Tool” (B) and in the “Brush Panel” use the following values:



Brush Tip Shape:



Shape Dynamics:



Scattering:



Texture: (Use the same texture used in “Step 4”)



6 - Click on your text thumbnail while holding the Command/Control key to create a selection.



7 - Go to the “Paths Panel” and click on the “Make Work Path from Selection” button at the bottom of the panel.



8 - Select the “Work path”, go back to the “Layers Panel” and create a “New layer” by clicking on the button at the bottom of the panel.





9 - Change your “Foreground” color to a medium shade of beige (we used #584632). Or use your “Eyedropper Tool” (I) to choose one from your image.



10 - Using the “Path Selection Tool” (A) right-click on top of your text (make sure the “Work Path” is still selected), choose “Stroke Path” and use “Brush” as “Tool” in the next window.









11 - Double-click on your new layer and apply the following “Layer Styles”:

Bevel & Emboss:



12 - Change the “Blending Mode” to “Screen” and the “Opacity” to 75%.



13 - Check out your text.
