A reflective shiny text effect

This one is about creating a text that looks to be under a strong light, and such text is reflecting most of that illumination. It's like if it was made of some kind of polished material.

First of all, open this free online text effect generator, so set its elements as explained:
- Text: Shiny (type as your prefer);
- Font size: Big;
- Margin: 4;
- Background color: 404040;
- Font name: AntsyPants.

Above are the configurations you need to get this resulting graphic text effect (click to enlarge):

Extra tips:
- the trick here is using a special glow text effect to get a intense reflective look. This effect has a nice internal glow, so we can achieve that appearance;
- you need to select a thick font face to get a strong internal light reflection;
- in fact, this effect also generates light emission, so it's a better idea to choose a dark background, so the glow outside the letters are almost invisible (remember we want a reflective look, not a light emitting one);
- make countless awesome free texts online by using these impressive text effect makers.

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