Gold Textured Lettering
I have seen lovely images of quotes and crafts with gold foil font and have wondered how to create my own. Gold lettering using hex codes looks pretty, but flat. The hex codes you could use include: FFD700- gold, FFDF00 – golden yellow, D4AF37-metallic gold, CFB53B – old gold, Vegas gold – C5B358. I’ve compared them with gold foil overlay – can you see the differences?
You can even explore more metallics – glitter gold, rose gold, wrinkled gold, shiny gold even Gold Christmas lights can be used as texture overlay.
