12 Experimental Dirty Textures

I spent the last few hours playing around in Photoshop with all the new textures I shot last week. This is one of the most enjoyable times for me as a "texture maker". I just love combining textures and crafting a cool final product. I hope you guys find some good use for them!

These are beautiful! Thank you. Now I wish I could learn how to best use them. With blending modes on top of a photo? Adjusting Opacity and Fill? Are there other ways??

Cool. Those didnt seem like a product of mixing textures, it is like abstract form using watercolor or something. Thank you for sharing these dirty textures.
