They say you can’t improve on the classics but this week Deke dives into his archives and revisits a tutorial from the very early days of Deke’s Techniques, “Creating heavy metal type.” This is a technique his fans have asked him again and again to update, since the technique has changed so much since Adobe Photoshop CS6 and CC were released. Watch the new video and learn how to build a custom pattern for “stamping out” your type and use layer styles to really make it pop out from a metallic background.

And stay tuned! Next week’s free video shows how to turn a picture of a disorganized jumble of objects into an engaging product shot fit for any catalog or magazine.
