This week’s technique shows how to create a military-style dog tag by combining vector shapes and layer effects in Adobe Photoshop.
Bert creates the base for the tag with a rounded rectangle and a simple bevel. Next, he adds some type and applies another effect to create the illusion of it being stamped into the metal. Finally, with a custom brush and a little masking, a chain is made to complete the project.
