Nice work. You might want to look through some of Draconian's tutorials - the Master of metal.

Thanks for the kind words Molly and Erisian. It's always helpful to hear some feed back. Erisian, you are so right about Draconian's tutorials - the Master of metal.

Molly you were looking for the "Fairy Dust" font and found it. I would like to know how you got the effect on the text after you found it.

Good job Brazos 42, and thanks to everyone for the all the "Metal Meister" praise.

I can't remember who posted it but I had it bookmarked anyhoo. This is one of the best gear tuts I've seen around -

Another excellent one is the one Rod posted a couple of months ago -

@ Molly, I would like to know how you did the effect on the image I attached to my last reply.

@ Draconian, I'm checking out those tutorials you suggested. I believe you know about installing python or have info on that. Can you share a link about that with me?

Sorry Brazos42,
I have no idea how I did that except I used a satin background, but for the text, it has been so long. I might have used the filters > distort > bevel for the M and the same for the olly.
I will try to recreate it cuz I am not sure.

To install Python, there is a great text tutorial in the tutorial section by Rod. It was very easy for me to follow so should be easier for you

I know I used the bevel filter, but I forget what I used next, except I did a little colors > curves
