Learn how to create a 3D text effect in Photoshop inspired by the Super Mario classic video game. We'll create a black plastic cartoon text in just a few simple steps using this 3D Photoshop action generator for creating the 3D effect with just 1-Click. You can customize the plastic text as you wish adding other layer style, changing the color, etc.


Learn how to create a 3D plastic text in Photoshop inspired by the classic Super Mario Video Game; First you have to download the super mario font and learn how to install font in Photoshop. Write a simple text; I will use 3 text layers writing SUPER PSD DUDE LAND; you will see that you will have to create the effect for each text layer individually.

Make each letter a different color; use bright tones of yellow, blue, green, etc.

Now you will have to work with each text layer individually and add the following layer styles. Please remove the black background layer before you go to the next step. Right click on the Text Layer and convert to smart object

Duplicate the smart object two times and add the following layer styles for each layer. To the first Smart Object Layer add a Stroke using a dark gray color #252525

For the second Smart Object Layer add a Drop Shadow and a Bevel and Emboss layer style
