    Hi guys, long time no post but still lurking.
    I'm trying to create the effect that one gets with a paintroller.
    Do you know what I mean? You know how on the first roll (usually on a
    slightly textured surface), the paint goes on thick and quickly thins
    out. I've tried using a gradient, and that works but only up to a
    point. I'd like the impression of texture. I've tried adding noise,
    and again, not quite what I'm looking for.
    Hints or ideas? Even a tutorial? It's going to be used as a logo on
    letterheads and maybe on a car door for a friends painting business.
    Thanks again.

    Think this might be what you are looking for:

    But you would probably get a much better effect taking a roller over an old
    brick wall for texture and photographing it.

    Hey, that's really cool. Cheers for taking the time to find this for
    me.
    I actually thought I'd found, at least, a partial solution for the
    person whose seeking my assistance.
    I made a gradient, and then went to filter -> sketch -> reticulation.
    Phoned my friend and he said that was exactly the effect he had in
    mind. All the same, I hadn't seen your post prior to this.
    It's funny how the seemingly simplest effects can allude us, at times.
    Thanks again,

    Good link, thanks. I'd have just stuck the image into Painter (or created it
    there), but for those, who do not have that program, this comes really close.
    Plus, it's always nice to do a job on just one app.
