Spray Painted Stencil Text Effect | Help Me Translate this into Affinity Language


Recommended Posts

I'm (foolishly) trying to reignite my interest in learning how to use Affinity, which to this point in my life, I have found inscrutable. If anyone can help me by translating the photoshop tutorial into affinity-speak, I would be super grateful. The differences in masking routines are breaking my brain.

It might help you to get some good answers if you show us what you have already achieved and explain which part(s) of the video you are having problems with.
You might be able to do what you want in a completely different way, rather than trying to map functionality between applications.
(If you expect someone to give you an Affinity-version of the whole thing then you might be waiting a good while.)

Thank you @firstdefence for disproving @GarryP and showing that there are good people out there :).

I appreciate the easier method you're using.

I found another layer that accomplishes more or less the same thing. The difference between your method and the method represented on these youtube channels is that masking interaction with the texture kinda creates a more organic/authentic verisimilitude. I can't understand how to stack/organize AP's layers/masks to recreate what is happening here. I think it's a better outcome overall...

Below is an attempt at a portion of the Texturelabs.com tutorial using Affinity Photo.

The other portions of the video are less difficult to follow using Affinity Photo.

The next video link is how to isolate the Sprayed Text effect on an transparent background.

The Live Filter > Diffuse effect can be applied again on the Sprayed Text Effect layer.
