10 Experimental Noise Textures

I've been meaning to make this texture pack for a while now and finally got around to it. I know these won't be the most widely used textures, but there may be a couple of instances where they are just what you needed. I've noticed a lot more designs lately using random "noise and scratches", so I thought I would try and replicate that into some textures. Please let me know if you make anything great with them!

Click on the textures below to download the high-res version or download them all in a zip file at the bottom of the post. Enjoy!

It's near impossible to get 'scratches' without other effects. I think I'll give them a try. Thanks!

Wonderful, I'm always excited to see your tweets announcing new textures. I've used many of your textures in making banners and avatars for friends. Looking forward to playing around with these!
