Photoshop Tutorial: Gold & Silver Metallic text

In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to create the same text effect you see in the cover photo.

Open a new #ffffff (white) background color canvas, enter some text and toggle the Blending Options with the following settings.

Drop Shadow

Bevel and Emboss

Bevel and Emboss > Contour


Gradient Overlay

  • Color stop: Location:0%, Color:#998e00
  • Color stop: Location:25%, Color:#fff30a
  • Color stop: Location:50%, Color:#e9d91c
  • Color stop: Location:75%, Color:#fff30a
  • Color stop: Location:100%, Color:#998e00

Your gold text will be something like this

To create a metallic font instead of gold, rework on the Gradiant Overlay with these following settings

  • Color stop: Location:0%, Color:#535b5e
  • Color stop: Location:25%, Color:#9a9a9a
  • Color stop: Location:50%, Color:#4a5154
  • Color stop: Location:75%, Color:#9a9a9a
  • Color stop: Location:100%, Color:#535b5e

And your output should look something like this
