Select your text layer from the Layers palette, then open the Layer Style dialog box by clicking on the Add a layer style button at the bottom-left of the palette and selecting Bevel and Emboss from the menu that appears. In the dialog box, set the Technique to Chisel Hard, the Direction to Down, and experiment with the rest of the settings to fine-tune the effect. The example below shows the settings I used, and the resulting effect.

Applying the Bevel and Emboss layer style

If the brushed metal background the text sits on looks familiar, it's because we created it in Chapter 4! (See the solution for "Creating a Brushed Metal Background" within the chapter.)
