Tutorials Textures and Patterns 16544 Views March 18th, 2015

In this tutorial we'll create a realistic lava texture in Photoshop using just a few simple tricks that you can use to create other kind of textures. If you don't find a texture or pattern that you like you can always create your own texture in Photoshop. You can make it in any size you wish, plus that you can transform it into a seamless tillable texture and use it as pattern.

You can also download the seamless lava texture. The pack comes with a tillable texture as JPG image and a PAT file to use in Photoshop.


Create Realistic Lava Texture in Photoshop

Learn how to create lava texture in Photoshop from this quick tutorial for beginners. First you have to create a new PSD file with the size that you want. Next, name the first layer Lava Texture. Fill thsi layer with white color.

Set the Foreground color to white and the Backgroundd color to black.

Go to Filter>Render menu and choose the Clouds Filter. This filter is used to create different textures in Photoshop: for example you can create of course cloudstexture but also stone rock texture, so it is a versatile and useful filter.

Go to Filter>Render menu and choose the Difference Clouds Filter.

Duplicate the Lava Texture and call this new layer Molten Lava Texture. For the mmoment hide the Molten Lava Texture layer. Return to the first layer, the Lava Texture and add it a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer with a Clipping Mask(learn more about how to use the Clipping Mask in Photoshop from these tutorials for newbies).

Go to Molten Lava Texture and unhide this layer. We'll now use the Filter>Artistic>Plastic Wrap filter to create the hot melted effect for the lava texture.

Set the blend mode for the Molten Lava Texture to Color Dodge and obtain this hot melted lava effect.

To add more vibrant color effects similar to fire texture you have to add a Gradient Map abouve all the other layers. The two colors used for the graident map are #e10119 and #fe8f00

Set the blend mode for the Gradient Map to Multiply, opacity 51% as shown in the image.
