A fun layers exercise/tutorial...

I came across a Photoshop "cracked and peeling" tutorial and thought I would give it a whirl.

Now I realize that very few (okay more like none) of our clients would ask for this but it's a good way to try (and learn) new things and expand your Photoshop skills.

Here is the finished image (click on it to view larger):


I took the original image -


and using layer masks overlaid it with a dried mud texture -


then took a small piece from a rust texture -

You can get these textures (and many more) for free over at CGTextures and you can walk through the step by step tutorial here.

Despite your thoughts on the commercial viability of the technique it seems to work quite well and is very creative. Something not to be overlooked by any means!
