Create Gold Leaf Textures and Realistic Gold Text in GIMP

In this GIMP tutorial, I show you how to create your own Gold Leaf texture or Gold Foil texture, as well as how to use that texture to create realistic gold text. I also show you how to blend your text with a textured layer below, making it look like the gold leaf text has been stamped on object/texture (in this case I used a leather texture).

This graphic design tutorial is easy enough for beginners to follow and can be used to create any gold lettering mockup!
