Learn about applying a texture to the type and extending that texture beyond the letter shapes.
- [Instructor] In this technique, I want to show you…how we can apply the same layer mask to the type layer…and to the background layer, and have that mask…reveal one color on the type layer,…and another on the background.…So let's begin with this as starting state.…First I need to add the spatter texture.…I'll create a new layer above my existing layers,…and then press B to access my brush tool.…I'm going to us a special effects brush here,…and it is Kyle's spatter brushes supreme spatter…and texture.…
Now I want to initially paint this spatter effect…in a color that is not red or black.…And this is just a temporary state, so it doesn't matter…what color you use.…So I'll just go ahead and add my spatter…and I can change my brush size if I want to.…Left square bracket smaller,…and right square bracket larger.…So in doing this, I'm making sure I'm covering…some of the background as well as covering the type.…
Alright, now I want to fill that spatter with black.…So I'll press D to restore my foreground background colors…
