Select the circle and the shape of sealing wax, now hit Minus Front in the Pathfinder palette.
Create another circle with a smaller diameter with the center coinciding with the center of the former circle. As you see, I'm filling the objects with different colors for educational purposes and for convenience, after all the transformations colors of the obtained figures should be replaced with a brown color. As a result of the actions described above we have made the shape of a ring, place the under layer with this shape below all the other layers. Create another circle with a diameter larger than the hole in the ring and place it below all the objects. Iaroslav LazunovMy name is Iaroslav Lazunov, I am a graphic designer from Zhytomyr, Ukraine. Lets Create Realistic Red Wax Seal using filters and bevel effects, you can also download fully layered PSD File. The cost to use 3D printing has come down so much in recent years that the common person can now afford to create the custom items he or she wants to fill the needs that they have.
Using another free program (this time a web based application) called Tinkercad, you can create your wax seal in 3D for printing. When your 3D model is done in Tinkercad, you can then export your wax seal to one of a number of 3D printing services offered up through Tinkercad.
When I compare it to one of my other wax seals, I did notice that some of the lines on my 3D printed seal were a little finer. I started to question if the detail would get picked up in the wax impression. Damp a paper towel with some kind of cooking oil and then press the seal down into the oil. Let the wax drip on to the area you want to seal until you have about a nickel size pool of melted wax. In short, the purpose is not only to learn to use blending properties, but also figure out how to create your own, without blindly following a preset. Grab the Ellipse Tool (U), set it on Paths and draw an ellipse in the middle and just about the same size as mine. Grab the Path Tool (P), select the vector mask, set the tool on “Add to shape area (+)” and draw a wavy, extra edge for the circle. Remember that if it’s called “Inner Glow”, it doesn’t really have to be a glow, might as-well use it to create a shadow or a stroke. Now we have a shadow for the top side and it means we need a light spot in the bottom side. Tip: Drag the window if it overlaps with the design, so you can see live what changes you make. Adjust the Blending modes for “Highlights” and “Shadows”: change them both to “Normal” and 100% Opacity. In order to adjust the illumination of the object, click on the More Options button in the dialog box. Turn on the Smart Guides mode (Command + U) and then the center of the red circle will be highlighted when the cursor approaching, take the Ellipse Tool (L) and holding down the Alt and Shift keys create a circle (filled with green color in the figure). You can do this by moving it in the Layers palette or by pressing the key combination Shift + Command + Left Square Bracket.

We are applying a 3D Effect so that the colors of sealing wax look the same, therefore the illumination settings are used here are the same as for the artwork. In order to see the entire print on the paper, all of its elements should be of the same level.
You certainly understand that the font size depends on the size of seal and is selected by eye. Select the second circle, drag the cursor to the lower part of the circle, click and enter the text. I am glad that I finally found the job in my life that I can share my knowledge and experiments with you in my tutorials. Over the last two years, we've produced thousands of PSDs, including buttons, icons, web kits, templates, background, textures and much more. I thought having such an item would be a fun prop for my weekly roleplaying game as well as neat little extra add on to the letters I write. In this example, I will show you the steps to create a custom wax seal using 3D printing Technology.
Using a wax seal to seal a letter to a friend or family member will make receiving of that letter much more special. Wax seals can also be used as props in tabletop roleplaying games and as decorations. Within Tinkercad you will have access to all kinds of shapes that you can combine to form more complex objects. This stuff supposedly adheres to paper a lot better then normal candle wax (which is brittle) and can handle going through the post office.
I will not only explain the techniques used, but also why and follow exactly the steps I went through, with all the ups, downs and adjustments encountered on the way to the final design. So let’s step away from the “copy these settings here and paste them over there” routine and think on our own for a while. We won’t use precise values for it, we’ll just play around with values and tweak them around. For that, we need an edge inside our shape, so the bevel setting will apply from that point and not from the opposite side. Select the vector mask again, grab the Path Tool (P), set it on “Shapes” and “Add to shape area (+)”. Let’s create the interior of the seal.Grab the Ellipse Tool (U) again and make sure it’s set on “Create new shape layer”.
This Blending mode hides the light tones and enhances the dark ones, so let’s use that in our advantage! This is just to add a “Wow!” effect to it, an actual seal is highly unlikely to be like this. Now grab the Brush Tool (B), set the brush tip shape to a round brush with 100% Hardness and simply click in a few areas of the shape.
It suggests the idea of old wax, but it doesn’t stand out from the design, which is exactly what we were looking for. In the pop-up window, click the first color box of the gradient, then click the other color box to change it.
We will need this copy for further designing, for now make the under layer with it invisible in the Layers palette.

It is not necessarily to set exactly the same settings I use, play with them to understand how it works. Now increase the diameter of this shape so that its outer outline could go beyond the outline of the hole in the Seal. Height of the elements is assigned by the Extrude Depth, though in our case the object is located frontally and this parameter is of no importance.
The best thing about vector is that you can re-color it and scale it as many times and in as many variations as you like. This process is now cheaper then having a 3rd party supplier of wax seals create one for you.
Which is a lot less then having a custom made seal done by one of these internet stores that makes custom seals. I was very impressed with out this project turned out, but like I feared the finer lines did not turn out. I just spent an hour picking wax out of my 3D printed seal for my wedding invites and – OIL!! Set Blending mode to “Normal” and Opacity to 100%, increase the Distance a bit and set it to a bright red, but make it a bit lighter than the color below it. Keep in mind we don’t need complicated effects with a ton of blending modes, we just want a small light and a subtle shadow.
I tried illustrating a mascot design for a project of mine and couldn't seem to get it right.
Check out Envato StudioChoose from over 5 million royalty-free photos and images priced from $1. It was perfect for what I wanted. Obviously you could draw out your own unique design for the your seal if you want. If you don’t do this chances are you are going to spend a good half hour picking the wax from your seal with a tooth pick over your sink. Lucky it’s hardly noticeable  The ring around the Autobot logo and the two lines for the ears of the logo hardly came through at all.
Change Blending mode to “Normal” and 100% Opacity and set the color to a dark red (or black). Instead of trimming the circle to make a thin ring, we can apply the emboss effect to its stroke. It equals to 3 px, this value should be set for all objects of the seal print which we are going to deal with later. Then Alex suggested I get the a custom made Autobot logo since I am such a Transformers fan.
Once you have traced your image you can export it as a vector file (.SVG) to your computer. I thought the idea was pretty cool, but most places I saw on line that offered to make customer Wax Seals cost over a hundred dollars.
