You're pretty good natured about my kidding!

I think you can do it with the font you've got. The letters k, a, c, are the same in latin and cyrillic.

After reading your other post I see you want it to be readable to english speakers but want a few cyrillic characters that look like backwards verions of latin characters for effect (not worrying about what it actually spells in Russian), you're on the right track, I would change it just slightly to something like КЯАSИАЧА ZVЭZDА. There are a lot of variations you could use

Hey, I understand kidding. I dish out enough of it, I ought to know how to handle it when it comes my way.

Thanks for being understanding! My trouble is that I can't get the Cyrillic characters to work in Photoshop. Cutting and pasting isn't working. I don't think Photoshop is recognizing the characters.

Cheers,

Bob

The reason I asked was because I'm Bulgarian and I couldn't understand what the lable said.

Great beer label... if you're a goose stepping commi!

Just kidding, Great label, really captures the feel of communist people's art.

You are correct. My grandmother was from poland and taught me some polish and she would always toast saying that.
