What You'll Be Creating
This tutorial will show you how to create and style a mixer brush tip, and adjust its settings to stroke a work path and create a simple 3D text effect. Let's get started!
1. How to Create Background and Text Layers
Create a new 1250 x 2000 px document, click the Create new fill or adjustment layer icon at the bottom of the Layers panel, choose Solid Color, and set the Color Fill to #040214.
Add the Blue circle background image on top of the Solid Color layer, rename its layer to BG Texture, change its Opacity to 35%, and resize it as needed.
Create a reference text using any script font you like. The font used here is Nickainley, and the Size is set to 350 pt.
If you have more than one line of text, make sure to change the Leading value to one you like. Here, it is set to 550 pt.
2. How to Create and Style a Mixer Brush Tip
Pick the Ellipse Tool, make sure that the Shape option in the Options bar is active, and click anywhere inside the document to get the Create Ellipse box.
Set the Width and Height values to 50 px, and click OK.
