    Create foiled type

      I'd like to know how to create a foiled type effect that could be gold, silver, or copper in either gloss or matte.

          I believe there are some styles that are long the gold foil look. There are also tutorials on youtube about it. But basically it is a sharp contrast between highlights and shadows with a color overlay. Using a gradient that goes from bright to dark and bright again which can be repeating, would create that contrast. As long a the gradient is grayscale, a color overlay will change it from god to silver for example. Yellowish for gold and white for silver. This could also be used for brass.

          Adding a texture could change it even more from a polished metal to a rough metal.

          Good luck...
