Oily and Shinny Text Effect in Photoshop

OK, here is a text effect I came up with yesterday while making some crappy design and since it turned out pretty nice, I decided to make a tut about it. So, we will be making this nice oily text:

So, start off by making a new canvas, and fill it with a dark background colour, we used black.
type the word u like… we used customized GauFont PopMagic.

go to layer >> layer styles >> blending options, and set the following settings:

  1. Inner Shadow
  2. Inner Glow
  3. Bevel and Emboss
  4. Contour Line Inside
  5. Contour
  6. Satin
  7. Colour Overlay
After all these settings, u will have this:

Now, duplicate your layer.
Select the upper (copied) layer and go to Filter >> Blur >> Gaussian Blur, and apply THIS BLUR
Reduce the opacity of the blurred layer to about 70%.

That’s it, hope u like the result, please post any questions u have!
