1. Google “brick wall” and find yourself a nice wall to tag. This is the one that I chose for this tutorial.
2. Paste your brick wall into your Background layer then create a new layer.
3. Pick your font to tag with and write your text. I went to dafont.com and chose the font Turntablz BB. It’s a simple “graffiti font” that is clear and easy to read. For the colour I chose something similar to the background so it blends in better and becomes a part of the wall, but you can choose any colour you want.
4. (Optional) Use the Line/Curve tool to make lines going down from the bottom of your text. Set the width to anything between 2 and 6. Use different sizes for lines if you want.
5. Go to Effects > Artistic > Oil Painting. Set the brush size to 2 and the coarseness to 88.
6. Go to Effects > Distort > Frosted Glass. Set the max. scatter radius to 2.33, the min. scatter radius to 0 and the smoothness to 2.
7. Duplicate layer > go back to original layer > double click > blend mode: overlay > go to duplicated layer > double click > blend mode: multiply. Adjust the opacity on both layers to your liking.
Finished product should look something like this.
