So here I thought I would do battle with the metal textures for my screw, stands and gears. The two metallic textures I will be using is a copper and brass.
Brass in the making. For this I combined the presets of copper and chrome and then tweaked the reflection and colour. I then added noise to the bump map to add some texture.
Here is the brass in comparison to the copper texture I made for the stands. I quite like the comparison as it shows that even a little bump map adds a home new feel to the texture.
