How to create rose gold/copper text in photoshop!

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and are having a lovely weekend! Earlier on today I was trying to find out ways on how to create rose gold/copper text for my header image on my blog as I’ve always loved how it looks and if you know me by now, I flipping love a bit of copper! Anyway, I came across a fabulous way of how to do it in Photoshop when researching it (where I found the information is linked below) and thought I would share with you how I did it in a few simple steps all for free! I am by no means an expert but I love just playing around with the software and seeing what I can create! I decided that I wanted a copper header image but I am also going to be showing you a rose gold text option if copper isn’t your cup of tea!  I hope you enjoy my lovelies…

What you will need:

  • Download a FREE trial of Photoshop on their website HERE 
  • Download a copper or rose gold metallic texture image

Step 1:

Once you have downloaded Photoshop onto your device, open the software and create a new document by going to  File > New. Select the ‘default photoshop size’ template and click ‘create.’ You can also change the dimensions at this stage but I found the default size worked fine. You also don’t need to change the colour of the background as it is already set as white.

Step 2:

If your toolbar isn’t open just simply go to Windows > Tools and if your layers panel isn’t open like mine was, go to Windows > Layers. Now you have a blank document, select the text tool from the toolbar and click anywhere on the page where you would like to place your text. Type in your text e.g your blog name and choose the font style and size that you want. This will then create a new text layer. If you would like to move the position of your text, just press the ‘move tool’ at the top.

Step 3:

Open the rose gold or copper image you downloaded earlier by going File>Place Linked. Position your image over the text underneath so it covers it. Then select the ‘move tool’ at the top again and a notice should pop up asking if you would like to place the file. Select the ‘place’ option.

Step 4:

To create the clipping mask, in the layers panel in the bottom right hand corner, right click on the copper/rose gold layer and select the Create Clipping Mask option and voila, you now have your rose gold/copper text!

Now having played around with Photoshop, you can create different effects using the same technique e.g marble text which is fab! Thank you so much for reading as always and I hope you enjoyed this post and found it in some way helpful! Let me know if you end up having a go at doing this yourself as I’d love to see your designs! Also, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask!

Much Love, Amelia xx
