TUTORIAL: a refractive crystal text

Let's make something less usual today. I will show you how to get a text with "fractal like" shapes. It's the appearance of certain kinds of crystals when it's refracting geometric bodies.

It can be made by setting this free text creator as informed here:
- Text: FRACTAL (type the text you want);
- Font size: Big;
- Margin: 3;
- Background color: 80A0FF;
- Font name: NotMaryKate.

That's the rendered image (click for a full size viewing):

Extra tips:
- in my opinion, a font face with regular geometry is always a better choice for using with this effect;
- you can find several powerful glass text effects at this text generator catalog.
