This tutorial will help you create Lava text effect. Step 1: Create a new document. Any size. Step 2: Make sure you have the default colours (press D) and then Press Alt+Backspace to set your background to black. Step 3: Press â€˜Xâ€™ to invert your colours. Step 4: Take your type tool and type some text. Anything. Step 5: Right-click on your text in the text layer and select â€œrasterise layerâ€?. Step 6: Go to Filter > Stylize > Wind. Click OK. Step 7: Go to Edit > Transform > Rotate 90 CW. Repeat step 6 and step 7, 7 more times. Then do step 7 one time. Step 8: Centre the text by Holding down Ctrl+Shift and dragging it to the center. Step 9: Go to Filter > Distort > Ripple and set the amount to 100 and size to small Step 10: Duplicate this layer. Go to Filter > Distort > Ripple and set the size to Medium. OK. Then change the blend mode of the layer to Overlay. Step 11: Duplicate the layer with the medium ripple. Go to Filter > Distort > Ripple and Set the size to Large. Change the blend mode of this layer to Exclusion. Step 12: Make a new layer. Paint over it with a colour you would like your effect to look like. Use high contrast colours. Then change the blend mode to Overlay. Step 13: Now, press D to reset your colour palette. Take your horizontal type tool and type the same text you had typed earlier, with the exact same font and size. Then, move it over to the center right above the old text. Step 14: Right-click the layer and select Blending Options. Go to Outer Glow and change the colour in the colour-box to white. Also, set the Opacity to 60 and the â€˜sizeâ€™ to 10. Click OK. Step 15: Change the opacity of the new text layer to 25% and move the text layer below the colour layer. Voila! Final: Alternates: - If you find that your text is not visible, then increase the opacity of the text layer. - Use Bright Green for an excellent Poison Effect. Btw, Koolbluez, I hope using this title doesn't make any problems with you, if you do, just say, I'll change it, no probs.
