Create Bread Typography in Photoshop

In this Photoshop tutorial, I will show you the steps I took to create this interesting bread typography in Photoshop. We will be adjusting and manipulating several bread stock images to make our typography. Have a try!

This is an beginner-intermediate level difficulty tutorial.

Note: The Photoshop tutorial is done in Photoshop CC – therefore some screenshot may have slighting different layout as in the earlier version. Some brushes are exclusive to Photoshop CS6.

Here is a preview of the final effect I have for this tutorial: (click to enlarge)

OK Let’s get started!

To complete this tutorial, you will need the following stocks:

Bread Stock Image 1

Bread Stock Image 2

Bread Stock Image 3

Bread Stock Image 4

Strawberry Jam

Step 1

Create a new document sized 1400px * 800px with white background. Load the “bread stock image 1” and make a selection of the Croissant:

1 sel

Copy and paste the selection to our document. Reduce its size and rotate it to form a letter “C”:

1 pste

Use a soft eraser, remove the shadow around the Croissant:

1 erase

Apply the following 2 adjustment layers as clipping masks to this letter “C” layer:

Levels

1 lvs

Curves

1 curves

and here is the effect so far:

1 effect

 

Step 2

We will work on our next text “A”. Load the Break Stock Image 2 into Photoshop and select it:

2 sel

Copy and paste the selection onto our document. Re-size and rotate this layer as shown below:

2 paste

Duplicate this layer once and flip it horizontally:

2 flip

Duplicate one more of this bread layer, finish the letter “A” with it:

2 paste 2

and here is the effect so far:

2 effect

Step 3

We will work on the letter “F” in this step. Load the Break stock image 3 into Photoshop and select it:

3 sel

 

Copy and paste the selection to our document. Re-size and rotate it as shown below:

3 paste

Repeat the above process and copy two more pieces onto our document:

3 paste 2

We will form the letter “F” in this step:

3 paste 3

 

Step 4

We will work on the letter “Y” in this step. Load the break stock 4 image into Photoshop and select it:

4 sel

Copy and paste it onto our document. Re-size and then warp it into a curvy shape:

4 warp

Repeat the above process, and add another piece of bread on the left side:

4 warp 2

Then add another piece down the bottom:

4 resize

And here is the effect so far:

4 effect

 

Step 5

We will add some Jam onto the bread in the step. Load the strawberry jam and select the jam part with the Lasso Tool:

5 sel

Copy and paste the selection to our document. Re-size it and place it on top of letter “C”:

5 resize

Warp it slightly:

5 warp

Also use the Liquify Filter with the following brush setting:

5 liq

This is my result after using the liquify filter:

5 liq filter

Repeat this process and add more jams onto our letters:

5 mre liq

Step 6

We’re almost done! For final touches, use cloud brush to paint some cloud around the letters:

6 cloud

You can also the add some colours with a colour balance adjustment layer – I will leave this to you to experiment.

Here is my final result: (click to enlarge)
