In this quick tip you’ll learn how to create a frosted glass effect in Figma. This is a really popular effect and it’s actually extremely easy (just a couple of steps) to recreate in Figma, so let’s get frosting!
Frosted Glass in Figma
Here’s a video version of this quick tip. Follow along with us over on our Envato Tuts+ YouTube channel:
Here’s the effect we’re going for:
1. Start With an Image and a Rectangle
Add an image to your canvas, then draw a rectangle over the top.
Set the fill of the rectangle to the color you want (I’m going to go for white #ffffff).
2. Add an Effect
With your rectangle selected, lower its opacity to 20% and then add an effect in the properties panel just underneath. Make the effect a Background Blur and by clicking on the dial to the left of the effect control, apply a value of whatever you want (100 actually works quite well).
You might want to play with the level of opacity as well, but with the blur effect and the opacity you can control the precise frosted effect you want.
