Thumbs Up How do I get this done ?
Hi Guys,
I am so excited this if my first post.

I want to get the same look as this button. I have tried using brushes and script fu effects and I can't seem come close to it.

Would highly appreciate it if someone can point to me a resource which can help me get this done.

Cheers,
Kachaloo

RE: How do I get this done ?
If what you are looking for is the jagged/eroded looks of the frame:

- Use a fuzzy brush, and in the brush dynamics, set the width to "random". You may want to try several levels of randomness.
- Draw the frame
- Blur the result (amount=width of your brush)
- Using the brightness/contrast tool you can adjust how jagged/eroded it looks.

Since you may run several tries before you get something to your liking, it's better if you make a "path" for your frame, and then stroke it after changing the brush settings.

If you like what you obtain on the frame, getting it on the letters may be a bit more complicated, lets save that for the next episode.

Text:

- Create your text with the text tool,
- Strike the "path from text" button in the Tool options dialog
- Move the text layer create out of the way, we don't need it anymore (move to bottom, for instance)
- Create a new layer
- Open the Paths dialog, where you'ill find a path with your text as a name
- Stroke the path with the same brush you used for the frame
- If the characters aren't filled completely (or not enough):
- selection from path
- bucket fill
Then, as above, blur/contrast
