Hello, D.I.C.

Today I'm going to show you how you can add a nice glaze over wording. It's most affective over a single word, but

you can use it how you like, and experiment.

First of all, we want to create new document (CTRL + N)

Create your word in a nice blocky font.

Now, right click your text layer (once you're happy with it) and click "Rasterize Type"

This will make your text a shape and you'll no longer be able to change the text.

OK, now grab the Elliptical Marquee Tool (M), and do a nice oval over the top of your letters.

Next, hit CTRL + J. This will duplicate the text layer, but only what was inside the selection.

Next, double click your new layer and add a colour overlay.

There's your most basic tutorial, but there can be a lot more achieved by using the marquee tool differently.

Here's some others that could be created using a similar method

That's my tutorial, I hope you've learned a simple yet affective affect. More glazing can be found in the PSD for this tutorial (get it here).
