When regular text boxes don’t do the trick it’s time to call WordArt!



Go to Insert > WordArt. Write your text and hit enter. Change the font to one you like and set border line to transparent.

Now go to Fill Color, click on Gradient and select Custom. We are going to create three different effects: Silver, Gold and Rose Gold.

To accomplish the silver effect, I’ve added four gradient stops on top of the default two.

To edit each gradient stop, click on each and click select gradient stop color, choose CUSTOM.

Here are the HEX color codes I’ve used from left to right: #ccccccff #f3f3f3ff #666666ff #434343ff #b7b7b7ff #f3f3f3ff

Once you are done, click OK.

Repeat the steps above (I’ve also used 6 gradients stops for this one). And use the following HEX color codes from left to right: #da9c10ff #ffda4bff #3d2101ff #9b6c14ff #c99939ff #f4c45eff

Once you are done, click OK.

Yep, again you’ll have to repeat the steps above, add 4 gradient stops on top of the two that are given. And here you have the HEX color codes that I’ve used from left to right: #fefefeff #e1aca6ff #f4ccccff #5c2926ff #d48681ff #f7e1dfff

Click OK.

TIP: You can also add these effects to Shapes!

You can check the Roskilde theme that has little touches of gold.

ATTENTION GOOGLE SLIDES USERS: PLEASE, DO NOT REQUEST FOR ACCESS. If you are prompted to “Request for access·” (sometimes it happens when you are logged in more than one Google account or when you are logged in a Google for Education account and your IT Admin has blocked the access), you can try again by logging in a personal Gmail account, and signing out of all the other accounts.

The other workaround is for you to download the pptx file, upload it to your Google Drive, and open it as Google Slides.
