TUTORIAL: a beautiful translucent glass text effect

Today let's create a very nice blue glass text effect. It has a translucent look and is very eye catching.

You can create it by surfing to this glass text effect generator and putting these values:
- Text: GLASS (choose your own);
- Font size: Big;
- Margin: 5;
- Background color: 4040FF;
- Font name: Judge.

If you make as I told, you get this final image (click to enlarge):

Extra tips:
- it's important to use this background color to achieve the best translucent look. If you set other color, the text will still look like made of glass, but not a very transparent one;
- for this effect, don't choose a too thin or very irregular font face;
- you can create many astonishing glass text effects by using these online professional text effects.

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