Recreating a mottled brass effect

Recommended Posts

I made the attached image a good while ago and now I need to recreate something similar.  Problem is I don't recall how I did it :( I think that it involved Clouds to get the graduations and then Flames, but I just can't seem to replicative the 'brassiness' or intensity.  The must have been some additional steps ?  Any ideas ?  Thanks.

Without the image almost impossible to guess but perhaps you used Metallize (plugin?) or Posterize (default tool?).

 

Attaching an image here is not difficult but keep the file size down to under 1MB, ideally much smaller and it should download OK. Remember you still need to 'insert' it into the post using the + button on the bottom left of the downloaded image thumbnail.

@mafitd A lot of us use free, outside sites like Imgur and Postimage to host our images.  Copy the Url or Img code and then insert it into your post here so that we can see what you are trying to emulate.  Thanks :)

Oops forgot about this as Onedrive was playing up and taking ages to sync.

Here's a link to the image...

Perhaps you changed the Layer Mode?  Also, perhaps you could have used Gradient Mapping, which has a lot of choices to get more vibrant colors.
