One of the best features in Photoshop is the Layer Styles. We can create all sorts of effects only using it, you can create, Plastic, Glass, Aqua, Ice, Metals, and many more.

Last week I was talking to a friend of mine and he told me that he needed to create a gold effect in Photoshop. He tried to find a good tutorial online but he said he didnt find any. I'm pretty sure that there are good tutorials showing how to do that, however I created my own Gold Style.

Now I'm writing a tutorial showing how to do that. It will probably be published at PSDTUTS.com, but you can take a look at the end result below.
