CoffeeShop "Pauling" Fine Art Texture/Overlay Set and Tutorial!


It is a cold and rainy day, perfect for designing new textures to share with you! This set is part of my famous scientist set (you can see all of my textures here) and they are a lovely cracked painterly texture.

Use these textures over your images in Photoshop/PSE in Soft Light, Overlay, Multiply, or Screen blending mode. I posted a tutorial below. You can also use them as beautiful art papers on the web or print. They come with free commercial terms-of-use, no attribution necessary. Just have fun using them!

The stunning floral images used in this post are from the wonderful talented artist Sam from Bloom Photography. The cardinal is from Unsplash. I used this original texture along with a few of my own to create this set. The cloning tool is my friend! ;-)







CoffeeShop "Pauling" Fine Art Texture/Overlay Set Tutorial:


Open you image. This gorgeous flower is from Bloom Photography.


Open and click-and-drag the CoffeeShop "Pauling" Texture 3 on top of the image. Then resize it to fit (Ctrl/Cmd-T).


Put this layer in Soft Light blending mode, then copy that layer.

I want to remove some of the texture off the flowers from the top layer.


I clicked to select the flower layer and temporary turned off the texture layers. Then I selected the flower.


Turn back on all of the layers and click to select the top texture layer. Then go to the top menubar and select Filter

Look nice! But I want to do a final contrast adjustment, so I clicked to select the flower layer and added a Levels adjustment layer.


Adjust the contrast so that the flower really "pops".


I love this edit! This would look gorgeous on cards or printed for wall art.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and these textures. Please post your own edits using them on my Facebook page.
