Sparkler Light Text Effect Photoshop Tutorial
Tutorials Text Effects 25495 Views January 6th, 2015

Let's start the new year with this cool looking sparklers light text effect Photoshop tutorial. You will learn how to create a sparkler typography using any font type and text that you want. It is a little later for creating new year party flyers using this sparkle light text effect but it will probably be useful for next year.


Happy New Year!

Start with a simple background layer filled with #221c19 color. Write the text that you want. It is great effect for creating a new year party flyer or greeting card. You can use any font type you like. I will use Pacifico which is a free font type. Learn how to install new font in Photoshop from this quick tutorial for beginners.

Make a copy of the text layer and call the first layer Sparkler 1 and copy layer Sparkler 2. Let's start with the Sparkler 1 layer by adding these layer styles. The color for the Stroke border is #2b2222.

Convert this text layer into a smart object that way you will be able to edit the text. Add these layer styles to the Sparkler 1 smart object. The color for the Inner Glow is #1a3956 and the color for the Bevel and Emboss are #9dd7ff and #000000

Go to Filter>Distort menu and choose Ripple with these settings. This will be added as a smart filter so you can edit it at any time by double clicking on it. Convert the layer again into a smart object.

Add these layer styles to the Sparkler 1 smart object.

In a new layer just above the Sparkler 1 smart object, add this lava texture and call it Lava Texture of course. Right click on the layer and turn it into a clipping mask ; that way the Sparkler 1 smart object will act like a mask for the texture layer. Set the blend mode of the Lava Textureto Screen.

Add a Brightness/Contrast adjustment layer for the Sparkler 1 smart object. Add the adjustment as Clipping mask.

Return to the Sparkler 2 layer and reduce the Fill to 0%. Add a Stroke layer style of 10px.
