Thread: Paper texture not showing through

  1. #1

    Paper texture not showing through

    I recently wanted to use a rough burlap as the paper texture, so I imported a picture of it and applied as I added it to my canvas group. However as soon as I paint (I'm using oil, normal round) the canvas texture doesn't show through. Do I need to further process the burlap picture before i import it? I'm attaching both the start of my painting ane the burlap picture.

    This could be one of two things.

    1) How did you import that? It looks like it's just a background image - this is what the Grain version should look like (although I know you might have added it as a pattern as well).

    2) It's just not 'rough' enough for a visible effect with thick paint. Test it with the pencil or watercolour to see if that shows texture. If there is texture, it's just very faint, then you want to:

    - increase Roughness in canvas settings
    - edit the original image to boost the contrast to get more dramatic black/white effects (which is what creates the grain).

    It would be nice but PTGs tend to be pretty large and our bandwidth would curl up and cry. If we really need to take a look, you can always contact us directly by email.

    maybe try sendspace.com if you need a free temporary hosting; deviantart also uploads zipped files just fine iirc.
