TUTORIAL: a realistic glass text effect

What about creating a nice glass text? I will tell you how to get a beautiful text made of red glass.

It can be done by using this free text maker if you set it like this:
- Text: Red Glass (use the text you want);
- Font size: Normal;
- Margin: 5;
- Background color: FFFFFF;
- Font name: Bandy.

So you get this rendering (click to enlarge):

Extra tips:
- one of main reasons that make this effect realistic is its interesting light source shining from left to right;
- there are several glass text effects that can be used for free at this text generator catalog.
