Hello all today we are going to make a Icy text effect in adobe photoshop:

Icy Text Effect

First make a canvas ( I used 400 x 200 px ) and fill it with black:

Second we need to type in our text ( I used “Icy” with Ariel Black at 72pt ):

Now rasterize the text layer by right clicking the layer and click Rasterize Type:

Right click the Icy layer and click Merge down:

Goto Filter > Pixelate > Crystallize:

Enter 3 as the Cell Size:

Now goto Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur:

Enter 1 pixel and click ok:

Now goto Image > Rotate Canvas > 90 CW:

Goto Filter > Stylize > Wind:

Make sure From the Right is ticked and click ok:

Now goto Image > Rotate Canvas > 90 CCW:

Then Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation:

Enter Hue: 215 Saturation: 50 Lightness: 0 and make sure Colorize is checked:

And here is your final result:
