I used to make a lot of pipe and sheet metal templates many years ago, and am just about to start a new Design and Drafting site, so I decided to have a go at a basic pattern development layout. Adding dirt and general ageing effects to the drawing below the pattern is the part that has created the greatest interest, as it gives a realistic feel to the image. Here is my first attempt, but need to find a better plugin to age the drawing a bit more with some torn edges and coffee cup stain as the drawing is rolled up and generally worn in it's short lifespan in the workshop. Any ideas for aged newspaper type plugins that will apply general ageing and usage effects ??.
