How to Create a Copper Metal Texture from Scratch in Adobe Photoshop

In this tutorial we are going to learn how to create a brushed copper texture in Photoshop from scratch using filters.

Create a new PSD file 1300x1300px. You can make the document larger/smaller in size but it is important to be a square and not a rectangle. That means that the width and the height have the same size. Create a new layer called Copper Texture and fill it with white color.

Go to Filter > Noise > Add Noise and set the Amount to 50%, Distribution Uniform and Monochromatic.
