In this section we will introduce you how to create a bumpy logo and original texture. First we will create texture, then apply mask, and apply layer style.
There are some complicated parts but we will take each step. If you are too lazy to do the whole process, master at least the layer style.
Let’s start off by creating the background texture.
Open Photoshop and set the can as size 800 x 600.
Click [Layer > New Fill Layer > Gradient] and set the [Gradient Fill] using the example above.
Next, create a new layer (Layer > New > Layer) and apply [Filter > Draw > Cloud Pattern 1]. Then apply [Filter > Draw > Cloud Pattern2].

Click [Filter > Transform > Wave Form] and open the [Wave Form] dialog box. Set the preference in the dialog box using the example above. Click OK.
Duplicate [Wave Form].
The [Wave Form] we have just set up appears on top when clicking [Filter]. Click it a few times.
Change the draw mode of the [Wave Form] layer into [Soft Light].
Click [Layer > New Paint Bucket Layer > Fill]. Set the color #918278.
Click [Layer > Layer Mask > Remove]. Input any text.
Click [Layer > Order > To Back] and move [Paint Bucket 1] to the back of [Layer 1].
trl + Click the “T” of the text layer in the [Layer] panel.
Make sure the text is selected.
Select [Paint Bucket 1] in the [Layer] panel. Click [Layer > Layer Mask > Mask Selection].
Disable unwanted text layer by clicking the eye icon of the layer.
Now we have the texture and logo!
Check the background is clipped for the text shape. We will apply [Layer Style] to the logo for a 3D effect.
Apply Drop Shadow on the logo.
Click [Layer > Layer Style > Drop Shadow]. Open [Layer Style] dialog and set the preference using the example above.
Do not click OK yet.
Next, we apply Bevel.
Click [Bevel and Emboss] in the [Layer Style] dialog box. The detailed setting section turns into [Bevel and Emboss]. Set the preference using the example above. Click OK.
Drop Shadow and Bevel are applied on the text. The 2-D text transformed into 3-D with Bevel and Drop Shadow.
It took some time to create the texture and mask, however, the technique itself was not so complicated.
You can set the Photoshop layer styles very detailed. You can do much more than the settings we used in this section. Try and be creative.
