A quick Photoshop tutorial on the making and ancient old times texture.
We need to start by making a new document with 500x500px and fill it with linear gradient (use colors of #893844 and #380309).
After that apply Filter > Brush Strokes > Sprayerd Strokes with similar settings to these:
Now we have a relief like this one:
Ok, this background a little bit boring now. I think we need to add some design elements on it. For this you can use my flowery brushes. Also feel free to use whatever brushes you want. Use the Brush Tool to make prints as in my picture below (select color of #bb5e66).
Now, use the Eraser Tool and select the following standard brush from brushes palette.
Make a little clear work as on picture below:
Now itâ€™s time to add your text to the texture! Start by getting out the Horizontal Type Tool then write out your text with white color.
The font Iâ€™ve used above is called Village (32 pt, Crisp) for this tutorial, which is commercial. If you donâ€™t have it, just try different font. Write out something like â€˜Ancient timesâ€™ on the canvas. Now copy this text layer a couple of times, than change font size for every text layer and move it on your canvas as on my picture below:
After that create a new layer and fill it with black color. Apply Filter > Distort > Diffuse Glow to this layer.
Now we have a little noise on the texture.
Create a new one layer and fill it with white color. After that apply another one Filter > Noise > Add Noise with following settings:
Change layer mode to Multiply:
To finish off the tutorial, we will apply one more filter that attaches to the roughness to the texture. For this effect create a new layer more, fill it with white color again and apply Filter > Texture > Texturizer with similar settings to these:
Then change layer mode to Multiply:
After that apply the last one Filter > Blur > Motion Blur:
You can see the final result here:
Well, weâ€™re done for this tutorial! I hope it was useful for you! If you have some questions, just write me back.
