Create a Paint Peeling Off Text Effect in Photoshop

In this Photoshop video training tutorial, we’ll look at how to create Photoshop text textures.

Creating this text effect will require nothing more than a photo to use as the texture, an adjustment layer, and of course, some text!

But the difference in this tutorial is that we won’t be using masks, clipping masks, or Blending Modes to add the texture to the text as we’ve done in other tutorials, like the fur text effect. We will instead use the good ol’ “pattern overlay” layer style!

This effect works best when you use a texture that has some transparent sections so that part of the text is not affected by the texture. This usually creates the most realistic results.

Photoshop text textures are always fun to create, and you usually learn a lot while doing them, I hope that this tutorial is no different for you!

Leave any comments or questions below, and feel free to share your results with me!
