Create Bread Typography in Photoshop

The PSD file of this tutorial is available to buy on PSD Vault Shop, or via the PSD Vault VIP members area.

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)

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:


1 lvs


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)
