Weathered and or peeling paint effects

Recommended Posts


Currently I am attempting to create posters that resemble vintage signs so I would need to fade and age them and in some cases make the paint appear to be peeling in areas. I have most of the good plugins but have not been able to get the really good effect I want. Any suggestions on how to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

For peeling, try the page curl plugin

I can't help with metal signs, but if you want it to look like an old wood sign, try this:

Plan the shape of the sign. Add noise and duplicate the layer.

Motion blur on the new layer.

Make the design on a new layer.

Merge the wood layers, and place them above the deisgn layer and go crazy with the eraser.



For metal, I guess you could try rendering clouds to simulate rust, but that's the extent of what I've tried.

Cracked and peeling paint.

If these Crack Effect brushes seem useful they can be downloaded here:



Extracted from the .rar file with this:



Removed from the abr file with this:


Or this:



And used in Paint.NET with the CustomBrushesMini plugin.
