In this Photoshop tutorial I will show you how to create a wall painting effect using your own text, shape, logo and so on. Using this technique you can paint on lots of background textures like wood or concrete. This graffiti effect or wall paint effect can be achieved using some simple layer styles and filters.

It is not really the classic graffiti spray effect, it looks more like an old painted wall, and this old peeled effect can be applied on other grungy textures.

Graffiti Old Paint on Wall Effect

Let's take a quick look at the image that we are about to create. This paint grunge effect it is really easy to obtained even by a Photoshop beginner. We only have to apply some layer styles and filters to achieve the spray effect.

Here is a quick tutorial on how to create a wall paint effect in Photoshop using a logo, text or a simple shape. This effect it is similar to a graffiti effect and it can be used on different background textures or surfaces like wood, wall, cement or asphalt texture. It looks great on a multitude of textures but they have to be old grunge textures.

Ok so open this old wall texture in Photoshop and call it Wall Layer. Use a Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer to darken the image like shown in the preview. If you don't know how, check out this Photoshop adjustments guide for beginners.

Copy this written wall texture in a new layer and change its blend mode to Lighten to make the wall look more grungy.

Time to add a text, logo, shape, etc. You can use whatever you want aslong as you follow these steps. I will use this closed sign combined with a sad emoticon shape.

Using the Magic Wand Tool, select the black areas from the "closed sign" and remove it. Uncheck Contiguous so that you select the black area inside the letters.

Using the Magic Wand Tool, select the white areas from the "closed sign" and remove it. Check Contiguous so that you do not select the letters that are also white.

Fill the sad emoticon with a yellow color and also the letters from the closed sign using brite yellow, green, orange and blue colors. To fill the letters you can use the Paint Bucket Tool. You should obtain a similar result.

Add a black Stroke of around 3px to both layers(closed sign and sad emoticon). Select the two layers and convert them into a Smart Object or rasterize them it is up to you. The difference is that as smart object you will be able to edit them later on. Call the new layer Logo Layer.
