10 Free Original Hi-Res Fully Stained Paper Textures

stained-paper-preview

This is the second attempt to get these textures on the blog, since i scanned them in months ago the electricity cut out while i was about to save them and i lost the scanned images! so ive sat down and got them all scanned back in for you.

These were created by soaking A4 pieces of paper in a tray filled with food colouring and then left to dry in the sun. The edges are most concentrated while the middle of the paper has a sort of tie-dye effect.

Free Desktop Wallpaper: Smoke On The Water

No this is not a tribute to the legendary rock band deep purple more of a play on words as the actual wallpaper resembles smoke on water! Catch ma drift? it also reminds me of those weird portal things in the Donnie Darko movie, Check the preview below.

wallpaper-preview

To create this wallpaper I actually followed a great tutorial by Fabio Sasso over at abduzeedo to create a realistic water effect in C4d, I took the idea a little further and added splashes and some crazy cool smoke textures by Caleb Kimbrough.
