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.

Here is a beautiful liquid gold with ripples from the drops background image. This was supposed to be seamless but I can see that it’s not. Still it is a large image that should have plenty of uses. I love the colours and tones of this one, it makes me think of the morning and evening golden light, although in reality it is a bit strong to anything but molten or ... Read more Read More »

Dull metal machinery in a seamless clockwork background

Dull metal machinery in a seamless clockwork background

Steel, iron or aluminium metal machinery in a seamless clockwork background. Couldn’t really see the aluminum being used for cogs and gears but I wouldn’t know and it is kind of irrelevant anyway. This time I went for a low contrast dull finish to create a less intrusive seamless background.   Read More »

Hi, Here is another image of some more gold or brass clockwork. Again it is seamless, although with that really big cog or gearwheel there, you probably wouldn’t to make too many tiles as it will be obvious it is repeating.

abstract twisted gold metal background

abstract twisted gold metal background

Here is a large twisted abstract gold texture. Lots of warped squares in varying golden hues (I’m now thinking it is a touch green and would be tempted to do a slight hue adjustment and push it to the reds 1 or 2 points).   Read More »
