I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial. The design of this texture came about purely by accident – by playing around with this new set of brushes in Photoshop. As this is such a short tutorial, maybe you could take some time to either go back to the beginning or start again but change the settings – for instance, change the Plastic Wrap to another filter. You just may come up with something incredible!

I love using and learning Photoshop, and I also enjoy creating resources to share with the world. I am at my happiest when I have free time to further explore all that Photoshop has to offer and learn more about its powerful built-in tools. I hope people enjoy either using or learning from my free resources, and welcome any hints and tips - and of course, if you would like to offer a free resource on this site, please don't hesitate to contact me (top right of the page).

You will have to give me some more details before I can help - where does it start going wrong, or what do you actually end up with?
