Vintage Oil Painting Texture Set + Tutorial

Finished-results
Here’s the finished results, click read more for the tutorial and textures available free for downloading.





Here's a simple technique to give an image a soft vintage feel, with a raised painterly effect.
Here's what I did, as always your image may come out with different results, so it goes with textures,presets and actions.
So if you're still with me, lets go for it.

Original-Image
Here’s the original image I started with.

Step 1. Start with a photo, this will become your background layer.
OilPainting-1
Oil Painting One texture

Step 2. Apply my "Oil Painting One" texture on top of your photo, this becomes Layer 1.

Step 3. Now set the "Oil Painting One" texture "Layer" Mode to "Darken" and the "Opacity" at 38%.


Texture-applied-and-set
Here’s what it looks like after applying the "Oil Painting One" texture .
Now lets move on.


Step 4. Now make a duplicate of the "Background Layer" and drag it up so it's on top of "Layer 1"

Step 5. Now for the last step, while still on the duplicate "Background Layer" set the "Layer" Mode to "Multiply" and the "Opacity" to 68%.


Finished-results
Here’s what I came up with for the finished results.

That's it, pretty simple huh!
As always, thanks for stopping in, and while you're here, you might as well take something home with you.
Peace

  29. Dies scheint ein sehr interessantes Tutorial zu sein, da ich leider kein Englisch kann, macht die Arbeit der Google Übersetzer für mich, deshalb
    verstehe ich Schritt 4 nicht richtig, könnte mir das jemand in Deutsch übersetzen?

  68. Hello,
    I´ve found at flickr your Tutorial called "A Simple Texture Tutorial" and would like to try it (I am a Beginner), but cannot find the texture "RAGE TEXTURE", used in this Tutorial.
    Would you be so kind and upload it?
    Thank you very much! It´s a pleasure to use your textures and tutorials help the beginners a lot!
    Best regards,
    Tanja

  69. Elleif,

    You might want to return to the tutorial at Flickr, I made the words RAGE TUTORIAL link to the texture you seek, which by the way is the next image posted after the tutorial.
