reflecting text tutorial

You'll be making something like:


This is an example on a sign


The Steps
1. Once you're done designing your text, make sure the text is all merged into one layer. Heres my text.


2. Duplicate the text. On the original layer (bottom layer) click "Edit >> Transform >> Flip Vertical" and drag the text directly under the original text.


3. Change the reflecting layers opacity to somewhere between 30% and 70% depending on your colors and sign <-- very important




4. Click on the 'Eraser Tool'. Click on the circle brush that looks kinda fuzzy


Erase a little over half of the reflecting text.


Keep in mind the text above is just on a basic background. It'll look much different/better in a sign! (this is also why I said to adjust the opacity to what looks best on your sign)
