deep blue abstract grunge texture

deep blue abstract grunge texture

Hi, Here is an old fabric or canvas abstract texture that had a lot of paint and marks and stuff on it. There are other versions including the original on the site, but in this case I wanted a really dark and deep blue background. So I added some photo filters and played a lot with the hue and saturation settings and came up with this. As a standard grunge background it ... Read more Read More »

Grunge Background Texture From An Old Concrete Wall

Excellent Old And Dirty Grunge Background Texture Hi, here is another free grunge texture background, again from a concrete wall. This one has lots of marks, chipped paint, dirt and grit.

Gritty brick wall grunge texture background Hi, here is a really old red brick wall where moss is growing in the mortar. Range of different colours and dirt makes a fantastic grunge texture, although it may want to be de-saturated a darkened a bit for that. Think I may go give it a try now 🙂 Read More »

Two photos of dirty and grunge blue painted metal backgrounds

Two photos of dirty and grunge blue painted metal backgrounds

Two free images of dirty blue painted metal backgrounds Hi, Here are two photos I took of some dirty and grungy blue painted metal. It was actually the side of an old bus converted into a motorhome and painted with a brush or roller. I thought it would add some nice grunge texture to an image either de-saturated or with the cold light blue colour.     Read More »

great gritty grunge texture from an old concrete wall

great gritty grunge texture from an old concrete wall

Hi, Here is an absolutely great grunge texture from an old concrete wall. This is one of my favourites (yep that probably makes me a pretty sad individual :)) but who does love a good gritty grunge background. I couldn’t decide whether to post it in portrait or landscape because it works so well either way (I like it spin counter or anti clockwise). It is 4750 pixels on the ... Read more Read More »

Two images of a shrine in vietnam – standard photo and on old vintage paper

Two images of a shrine in vietnam – standard photo and on old vintage paper

Here are two free stock images of shrine in the jade emperor pagoda in vietnam. Fantastic place for someone interested in textures as I’m sure you’ve seen the red concrete and brick grunge images scattered through the site. As well as the religious aspects I also got some nice pictures of fish and turtles. The second image is using a paper or parchment filter and I think it really did ... Read more Read More »

Two steam-punk styled cogs and gears brass metal backgrounds

Two free steam-punk inspired brass or gold cogs and gears backgrounds. Well over in this post of a gold clock texture I said what I felt I would do with the image and then I thought ‘we’ll why not?’ and I went and did and here it is. I took that image and expanded the canvas to 200% in both directions, made four copies and tiled them. Flattened layers and then I cropped to ... Read more Read More »

old white weatherboard wooden plank wall

old white weatherboard wooden plank wall

    This in an old white weatherboard wooden plank wall that is part of one of the old falling down buildings on the property where I live. Pretty rough with pailings missing already to exacerabte the grunge aspects I’d do a strong high pass sharpen or use an unsharp mask with large radius (ie 80), 0 threshold and then adjust strength to taste.
