Beautiful Gold Engraved Decorations
Tutorials Textures and Patterns 56407 Views September 2nd, 2010

Learn how to create a beautiful golden engraved decoration that you can use to create a fairytale book cover or you can add it to your scrapbook. Using the same technique I will also make an engraved text effect.

We'll start by adding a nice floral border using a set of Photoshop corner brushes. I hope you will like the effect, so let's start!


Prepare the background

Create a new document with this size: 480/340 pixels.

Let's start by preparing the background. I was thinking about a nice golden texture. So I stat looking on the internet and I have found on Flickr this really nice background(unfortunately the image I used is no longer available) on DeviantArt this beautiful gold texture (in order to get a similar result with the original image you have to Add Noise amount 8%, uniform, monochromatic; then you must add a Vignette by adding a layer style with Inner glow, blend mode Multiply, opacity 70%, color black and size 115; to add some more brightness towards the center you can use the Dodge Tool).

Copy this texture into your file and call this first layer "Gold" Layer.

Step 2 - Add Vintage Decorations

Create a new layer and call it "Vintage Border".

Now go to and download this set of brushes.

Download the brushed, unzip the files and put the abr file into a folder on your computer. Return to the Adobe Photoshop file and select the Brush Tool, load the downloaded brushes and select the brush indicated in the image (named "ornament4").

Now set the color to white and add the shape you selected right in the middle of the screen just like in the picture.

Your link to the background is broken. reply

Thank you for telling me Sue B, I will replace the link with something else!
Unfortunately I can't stop the authors of the resources used in my tutorials to remove them. When I wrote the tutorial the link worked just fine .
So either you copy the small size image that is found at the beginning of the tutorial, or you use the new link from DeviantArt, or look for a different gold texture on one of the stock images sites. reply
