Green Slime Texture

Green Slime Texture

Description: This green slime texture is taken from shots which were taken recently at the Farm. I was cleaning out an old enamel bath the animals drink from and in the summertime there is a layer of green algae that forms in there, I was brushing it all to get it loose and realised how good that would be for a texture. Took quite a few of these and should be adding some more to the site soon, hope this ones of interest.

Cream Peeling Paint Texture

Cream Peeling Paint Texture

Description: Done a few alterations on this cream peeling paint texture as well, The original photograph features the cream paint on a very light sun bleached panelled wood, it looked quite washed out, so I have duplicated the layer up and using multiply boosted the colour value and then added a subtle border edge to the image. This new version is far more striking, also like the contrast between the blue and the cream colours.

Yellow Flame Texture

Yellow Flame Texture

Description: A new addition to the site featuring another hi resolution flame texture. This yellow flame texture features loads of bright yellow flames and the camera has also captured wisps of ash being lifted by the heat. Should be an interesting texture to use, you could also alter the hue of the image using the hue and saturation settings in Photoshop.

Water Droplet Texture

Water Droplet Texture

Description: This addition to the site features a close up shot of water droplets on glass. This one was taken from inside a car on a grey rainy day, there is a main focus on one section of the water textures where the image is sharp and focused, the left and the right sides are more out of focus and slightly blurred. Still like this one and think it should be featured on the site.

White Stone Paint Texture

White Stone Paint Texture

Description: A detailed shot of a large crack on masonry stone paint, this cracked paint texture is good for overlaying to create a grunge textured image, the best setting I found in photoshop was having it on ‘multiply’ (that’s in the layer settings) that lets the texture become kind of transparent.

Pitted Rust Texture

Description: This pitted rust texture is taken from photographs of the side of an old cast iron bath that has been stood outside in a field for years. There is deep pitting of the metal which makes a great grunge style texture.

I’ll be featuring this one in an up coming tutorial, this one looks amazing on hundred percent zoomed in, lots and lots of detail on this one, should look great as on overlay image in photoshop with a multiply setting.

Music Sheet Texture

by on May.02, 2011, under Music Textures


Music Sheet Texture

Description: I found this one in a shed at the farm, it features a detailed shot of a single sheet of piano music. The music sheet is pretty old and has naturally aged stains around the outside of the texture. The page on 100 percent magnification shows how the printed noted are faded and aged, these can be altered in Photoshop using the brightness contrast settings.

I’ll be adding a larger selection of these soon as there are quite a few old music books in there.

Telegraph Pole Texture

Description: This hi resolution wood texture is taken from close up shots of a telegraph pole. The wooden pole has been treated with tar and this has leaked out and created some excellent markings on the wood. I’ve seen some other tar covered poles which will also be featured on my photoshop textures site soon, hope you guys like the new addition.

Green Leaf Texture

Green Leaf Texture

Description: The start of a new set featuring green leaf textures. This addition features a close up photograph of a large leaf, quite a detailed shot lots of details. Will be adding more of these in the next few days.

If you duplicate the leaf texture layer in photoshop and in the layers setting change the top layer to ‘multiply’ you can get some great effects, its well worth having a mess about to see what different effects you can create.

Grunge Aged Wood Texture

by on Apr.27, 2011, under Grunge Textures, Wood Textures


Grunge Aged Wood Texture

Description: This grunge aged wood texture doesn’t look like much to start with but if you alter the layer settings in Photoshop to ‘multiply’ ‘overlay’ or ‘linear light’ it come in to its own, my favourite is the linear light, brings out the depth of the texture and is great for overlaying to add that grungy feel to an image.

This grungy wood texture was photographed from some old painted wood, some of the paint had worn off and cracks in the wood are showing through.

Detailed Rust Texture

Detailed Rust Texture

Description: This detailed rust texture is taken from a close up macro photograph from the side of an old galvanised water tank, rust has kicked in but due to the metal and treatment its quite subtle and has created a varied texture.

I think this one works well at 100% zoomed in photoshop as its grainy and the details are really sharp, but also works well zoomed out at different settings, love the gritty noise textures that appear at the top in contrast to the lower sections where the shapes are softer as the rain has washed over it.

Manhole Cover Texture

by on Apr.26, 2011, under Metal Textures, Rusty Metal Textures


Manhole Cover Texture

Description: A very detailed manhole cover texture which I took a macro photo of at work. The metal is worn and dry with slight hints of rust, some great details on this new addition. I will be adding more of these with a variety of different metallic patterns.

Making a note of all the amazing textures I walk past everyday, starting to becoming a bit of an obsession, but to add its surprising how many amazing things we walk past every day without taking note of, looking forward to sharing more of my favourite textures soon.

Again, hope you like the new additions to the site, comments always welcome.

Grunge Peeled Paint Texture

Description: Grunge peeled paint texture taken from photos of a section of an RJS. This one features lots of cracked paint, some of this has traces of lichen growing on it. The outer white paint has cracked showing the primer paint below and in sections even that has decayed letting the rusty texture show through.

Worn Sandstone Texture

by on Apr.22, 2011, under Stone Textures


Worn Sandstone Texture

Description: This one has been sat on my desktop for over a week and not added to the site straight away, its a very detailed shot of a worn sandstone texture, quite a subtle texture, first thing I wanted to do when I saw it was ramp up the contrast, but it does have value as it is. Should be good for making 3D stone textures, as its big in size there are lots of possibilities.

Love to see any great artwork created with the help / use of my textures, feel free to email links to the artwork from the contact page.
