make some smarties names

I was going through some stuff on my computer looking for something and found these smarties which I made way back in 2008!

I hope I kept a note of the tutorial I used because I'd like to be reminded of how I did those glossy bits!

Anyway, I thought I'd put them up as a challenge for you to make some letters out of them. Here's my name using Helvetica in white for the letters. Not too shabby.

Feel free to recolour the smarties as you like. I don't know how that's done in PSP or Gimp but, in PS, just select the layer and bring up the hue/saturation menu box (ctrl-U/cmd-U) and play with the hue slider.

Let's see your smarties names. :)

Have fun!

Mmmmm, I just thought - you do have Smarties over there don't you? They come in a tube like this:

They're a wee bit like M&Ms but only chocolate inside - and very, very tasty. :D
