Hello! Is my first post here. :) I'm trying to replicate this tutorial I found to create a foil texture. I found a way to replace the clouds filter using the Perlin Noise on Affinity Photo. But I have no idea to replicate the last step on this tutorial. Anyone has any idea to do this? Thanks!
tomocr posted a topic in Affinity on Desktop Questions (Mac and Windows)AP. I'm currently in the process of designing book covers for a clients project. 13 in total and then some. I've just finalised the first 3 but the printing company have come back asking for a file indicating where all the gold is to be printed (gold text and some gold frames on the covers). I'm assuming they are actually printing gold foil like you see on fancy wedding invitations. I have absolutely no idea what they are asking for here. I have tried a quick lmgtfy but it came up with nothing of much help (its a difficult question to pose to google). Has anyone had any experience with printing gold foil on any sort of project who may be able to shed some light on what the printer company are requesting? As of yet, I am only in talks with the client and have no direct conversation with the printers. Plus, to exacerbate things, my client is Norwegian so comms is difficult as it is. Any help much appreciated.
Hello, I need some help regarding blend modes. So, I applied gold foil to an invitation design using "lighten" because that produced the most desirable results. However, it applies the effect to all the layers underneath. Is there a way to restrict where the blend mode is applied? I tried using a different method like "paste inside" and it did not produce desirable results. I only want the outlines gold, not the inside of the shapes/texts. I attached an example of what I'm working on. You can see that I've applied the gold to the outlines using the Lighten mode. Is there a better way? I am a newbie to graphic design and really need help. Any suggestions or tutorials would be appreciated! Thanks!
