TUTORIAL: a text made using ice cubes

This time I tell you how to make an amazing text effect that looks like carved in ice cubes. It's not very usual and it can be very useful if you need something cold.

First you need to open this online ice text maker, so set its parameters like this:
- Text: ice cubes (type the text you need);
- Font size: Normal;
- Margin: 3;
- Background color: 000020;
- Font name: Horseshoes And Lemonade.

Below you see the result image you get if you make as explained (click to enlarge):

Extra tips:
- of course I needed to choose a special font to generate this "cube appearance", but this effect can generate many astonishing kinds of ice texts, mainly is you choose a thick font face;
- you can play with other back colors, but usually dark blue backgrounds are the best for this style of graphic effect;
- you can create several realistic ice texts by using the effects from this free text generator.

Is there a text effect you would like to see here? You can ask for it commenting here or sending me an e-mail.
