Step 3 : Creating the Liquid Text

Now that we have our worksheet set, we will begin to create the Liquid text, go to the “Text Tool” pick any type of font that you like but in this case I use basic “Arial Rounded” font.

Break the font by pressing “Alt + A + B”, after its break convert it into object by pressing “Ctrl + Q”, we will begin to create the effect with the letter “L”.

Go to the “Shape Tool”, and right click on the middle left side of the “L”, now you will see an arrow on the corners drag it in order to shape.

Apply the same to the middle right side of the “L”.

Apply it on all the side, shape it similar like below, we are basicaly editing the letter so it looks more “Fluids”.
