Text on Metallic Surface

Always use darker color for text because it is going to become the shadow there. Here I had used darker color than the background metallic surface.

Step 3 : Add Blending Options to Text

First select the text layer then click on the fx button below available and then click on Blending Options.

Now here we need to add two blending options i.e. Inner Shadow and Outer Glow.

1. Inner Shadow

Inner Shadow

Under inner shadow you can set the angle of light and the blending mode. If this seems to be tricky then check the Use Global Light which is all in one option for you.

2. Outer Glow

Outer Glow

Under outer glow we have to specify what color of glow we want to use and show out the engraved text. As shown above we have set a darker color of the text’s color and you have to use same dark color as per the text’s color.

Step 4 : Save Blending Options

After doing all the Blending Option corrections just click on OK button and save the Blending Options.
