The Best Spray Paint Textures

Turquoise Flag-Tip

Do a Google search for “Spray paint textures” and you’ll see why knew that the artistic community deserved better.

So, we brought in a well-known graffiti artist from right here in Cleveland to show us what he could do. And, well, we were mightily impressed!

Our graffiti artist had the supplies, technique, and experience to create incredible blended tones & texture. He quickly laid down a base of colors and then slowly added layers. By the time he got to the topmost layer, he was practically placing each drop individually! His control & detail was pretty amazing.

Really, it’s kind of like having your own personal Jackson Pollock at hand. To finish off each texture, he feathered the edges with white spray paint to achieve a natural splattered fade.

I’m happy with what we came up with, and I’ve already used the textures a few times. I like that these spray paint textures can be used without calling attention to themselves. With simple tools like Photoshop’s brightness/contrast and hue shift/saturation, the versatility is pretty impressive. Try blending these into any design that needs a more traditional, naturalistic, urban feel.

    Pretty cool :-)

    Thanks Simon! We liked them too. Now if only each splat was on a separate layer! :-)

    What can these be used for? This is the first time I have seen something like this.

  • MelissaWile

    A great collection you have there, it is a bit of a dissapointer that they are not on seperate layers but it would give a really nice effect to a grunge effect.

    These Spray Paint Textures are great and I think it is a good idea to use them in practice. Great works, indeed.

  • Adam_Wagner

    Oh, countless applications. Backgrounds, clipped onto text with a 50% overlay opacity, desaturated & pasted into a layer mask for an aging effect, etc, etc.
