    Tip from Jay

    nice way to produce a chrome or gold effect on type faces:
    01. create a rectangle
    02. create a sine curve, slightly larger than the rectangle
    03. center the rectangle and curve
    04. clone both
    05. slice one rectangle with the curve
    06. apply a gradient fill in the lower part
    07. apply another gradient fill in the upper part
    08. make bitmap copy (high resolution!!!!)
    09. type your word
    10. drop bitmap onto the word
    11. adjust fill size, eventually stretch
    12. apply bevel - very thin one with high contrast
    13. apply shadow
    if you select the appropriate colors, you can achieve either a warm, rich gold or a cool, sharp blue chrome effect - see below
