TUTORIAL: a dark reflective metallic text

Let's start the year with a nice text. That effect generates metallic letters that are dark, but reflective at the same time. This feature creates a very interesting mood.

If you want to try it, just open this metallic text effect, so put these parameter values:
- Text: reflective (type as you want);
- Font size: Normal;
- Margin: 3;
- Background color: FFFFFF;
- Font name: Feuerfeste.

Making as suggested, you get this image (click for a full size viewing):

Extra tips:
- maybe you have already noticed: the used font has no lowercase letters; - many pastel back colors generate nice results. Make several tries and choose the color you prefer;
- don't use too thin font faces for this effect. Thick fonts generate better light reflections;
- create many awesome metallic texts by using this big list of professional metallic text effects.
