About This Class

Digital, metallic foil has become increasingly popular and this class will reveal the mystery of how digital metallic magic is really created!

We’ll create impressive, made-from-scratch digital metallic foil textures and apply them to social media posts to get noticed quickly. We’ll walk through every step of the realistic foil making process using only Photoshop, creating seamless, fully repeatable textured patterns using some specific techniques. You’ll also learn how easy it is to change the color of your foil: from gold to silver, to black, red, blue.. to whatever you’d like! We’ll finish the class by applying our new textures to social media post designs for quick publishing. Every student who enrolls in the class will receive a social media sizes cheat sheet for quick post creations, a resources pdf with links to everything mentioned in the class and a bonus glitter file!

Basic knowledge of Adobe Photoshop is required.

Absolutely FABULOUS! Teela's explanations are very clear and precise, which is helpful for viewers of all levels of experience. Teela covers every step of each process, and explains her methods clearly. I was thrilled to be able to make foils, oil paints, crystals and glitters, and to create each in many colours! Highly recommended course!!
One of the best and most natural teachers online!
Excellent lessons! I've used Photoshop for years, and this taught me new tricks, besides teaching me to make beautiful foils and glitters. Now I can get the exact metallic look I need without having to buy extra supplies. Great presenter, as well. Clear and concise lessons. I'll be looking for more classes by this instructor. Thanks!
