Explore more Deke’s Techniques at lynda.com.

Halloween is around the corner, but it’s not too late to create decorations and invites with the drippy, ghoulish type Deke shows you how to make in today’s episode of Deke’s Techniques. Learn to take any boring old text and turn it into bloodcurdling ghost letters with Adobe Illustrator’s path editing tools, the Roughen effect, layer styles, and a healthy dose of the Liquify filter. Watch the free video below to find out more.

Want even creepier results? Head to the lynda.com library to find out how to transform the type from ghostly to gooey—kind of like it’s been slimed. Next week come back to learn how to create metallic looking type in Photoshop CS6 or CC, here for free on the blog.
