This text effect creates types in their metallic silver appearance filled with
bling-bling diamonds. This style looks best on dark background which makes the small stones look
more reflective. You can use this style for your text logo design, web page header design,
menu navigation, or use it as a base to add more embellishments later. This style is a modified
Script-fu version of the standard Sota Chrome style available in the open source GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program). You may freely
use this text effect from this page for any purpose or application, personal or commercial.
The rendered text can be placed on either a plain color or another background pattern. With many
combinations of font choices, pattern or gradient overlays, this single effect is very flexible to
give your design unlimited potential.
What gives the text its three- dimensional depth appearance is the careful placement of the drop shadow.
Here you can choose the drop shadow color, size, and distance from its source object to simulate the
location of the light source. The larger the drop shadow size, the blurrier its appearance is.
The following illustration shows a short text string in the default silver color pattern.
The silver text effect engine behind this page can produce the text pattern on a plain color
background, or on a background pattern.
