Mostly you have seen different types of layer Effect all around you in world of Graphic for Example:
Typography with fire, Outline Typography, chrome text typography and many others. In this nugget I will be showing you how simply you can create glass effect using Photoshop with your name. Before starting this project, you need to understand What is Layer Effects?
Photoshop layer styles are a popular way to add effects, such as drop shadows and strokes, to layers in a non-destructive way. With the right knowledge and experience, any effect can be achieved. To achieve these effects, however, you need to understand what each setting does and how they can be combined to achieve a certain look.

For Sub Menu of Bevel and emboss which is Contour apply these settings and click OK.
4. Till here your Project is created. For looking more attractive and beautiful like glass, go to background layer, duplicate it by pressing Ctrl + J on the keyboard, also you can blur its background by navigating to Filter- Blur- Gaussian Blur. Put the copy layer to the top and then press Ctrl+Alt+G or navigate to layer- Create clipping mask.
What is Clipping Mask?
A clipping mask is a group of layers to which a mask is applied. The bottommost layer, or base layer, defines the visible boundaries of the entire group. For example, suppose you have a shape in the base layer, a photograph in the layer above it, and text in the topmost layer. After clipping Mask your Project will look like this.
I hope you like this project and you have created your own name with this typography project. If you had any question so please feel free and ask them, I’m here for helping you.
