Dirty plastic noise texture pack

4 Attachments

This long weekend sees yet another The Shop release!

"These noisy and dusty textures come from an unlikely place. You know these little plastic pockets in billfolds to hold extra credit and ID cards? Well, now you know.

I've had that leather billfold for a while. It's old, and all worn out (see http://crtv.mk/sYYa for leather textures extracted from that billfold). It's been at the bottom of countless pockets and bags. And it has accumulated a lot of dirt, dust, and other lint particles.

I pulled out these little plastic pockets, cut them down in flat "sheets," and scanned them at very high resolution (on average 5250x7400 pixels @ 2400 dpi). These textures are the result of that scanning process.

The pack contains 4 variations of each textures:
- Black speckles on black (JPGs)
- Black speckles on transparent background (PNGs)
- White speckles on black (JPGs)
- Transparent speckles on black (PNGs)

Put them on Screen or Multiply, and noise things away. Add a specific color overlay, and add subtle speckles to your backgrounds. Paste them in your layer masks for subtle weathering."
