In today’s Adobe Photoshop tutorial we’re going to realistically apply a rust texture to a design. This can be done with any kind of image, it could be a single colour logo like I’ll be using in this example today, or even full colour artwork or photographs, which is how I used this technique recently, to create a weathered old road sign that I had printed up for my studio wall. It’s done by using the channels in Photoshop to make a selection of a texture, which is then used to erase the artwork wherever there’s rust. Because we’re using the Channels rather than a manual selection, every single tiny detail is captured, which generates ultra realistic results.
