Photoshop Tutorial: Make a Subtle Worn Texture (Requested) [HD Video]

A week or two ago, I gave away some textures I called “Simply Worn.” I was asked by many of you to make a tutorial on how I made those, and here it is. Best viewed fullscreen.

42 More Subtle Grunge Textured Photoshop Brushes

If, like us you are a fan of soft & subtle brushes then you’re going to love this new set. The focus on this set is to give you the tools to build up realistic textures in your designs, by using multiple brushes on multiple layers.

Details of the Pack

This set is completely free, you can use them anyway without the need of giving credit. The brushes are best used on projects meant for web use. They can be used elsewhere, but the way we made them, and the size of them make them ideal for use in web design rather than print.

The brushes all fade out around the edges, just so you don’t get any messy looking edges or straight lines in your grunge work. There’s a massive variety of textures & surfaces, 42 of them in total, all at different sizes and shapes. This set is a follow up to our popular first set.

The sort of thing you can expect from this set is really soft; Chalk, Concrete, Denim, Fabric, and Paper textures. All fixed up nicely and ready to use.

The set also contains some “harsher” brushes, such as some chalk strokes and some paint roller brushes. These kind of brushes are perfect for borders or masking layers.

Example of How to Use Them

Obviously you can use these however you want, but our best advice is to build up layers of texture in a subtle way. Play around with the various brushes - and build up the realistic textures by varying colours, opacity and placement. What you should aim for is something that looks natural and organic.
