Weathering metal details: Pixel Playground

Weathering metal surfaces with Photoshop

Explore Pixel Playground at lynda.com.

This week Bert finishes up his work on the red truck project by focusing on how to create a weathered look on its metal details. He begins with a simple shape but quickly adds some noise to give it texture. From there Bert runs a series of Adobe Photoshop filters to blur and distort the noise, and to give it a unique look. Finally he warps the texture around the shape of this piece and paints in new colors to give it that weathered look.

Check out the complete tutorial on lynda.com and get started weathering metal details in your own images, and be sure to check back next week for another episode of Pixel Playground.
