A thought just occurred after adding, what looks like a graphite logo for Facebook.

I was wondering if it was possible to somehow add a texture of graphite, no font colour and....

I'm not too sure how to explain myself here, basically, could I get graphite coloured text on my website?

Best Regards,

You mean a texture? No, that’s currently not possible with CSS.

You cannot use textures as text colors using CSS. The only way to achieve this would be to create a transparent image in photoshop, write the text you wish to have then overlay the text with the pattern.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds like this is possible, just not with css?

You can do this dynamically with .svg files, at least I think you could, I dont know what all the options are.


You can probably convert an .svg with photoshop, I know for a fact that you can with Imagemagick, so that it's a .png or such.

PS: Yes you can, use linear gradient for it, along with fill for color.
