Graffiti text effect tutorial


Step 1- Create a New Document

Create a new 1000x500 pixels document. You can do this by going to File > New.


Step 2

With the background layer selected, use the Paint Bucket tool to fill the layer with #D0CFCF.


Step 3 – Text

Now for the text create a new layer, you can go online and find a font that would best fit your design or for my tutorial I created a rough sketch of how I wanted my text to look and scanned it into my computer. Next, grab your pen tool and make one of the letters. I used the word "Graffiti".
