Freebie: Rust Texture Pack

Rust Texture Pack

I’ve been wanting to start giving away some original freebies from this site for a while, and today is the first one! This is a pack of 10 rust textures that I photographed this week. Each one is shown below. You can get any of them from Flickr (click on the images below). Most of them have a resolution of 2560 x 1920.

You are free to use these textures for personal or commercial purposes. The only restriction is that they cannot be re-distributed. Since this is my first time giving away textures, if you have any suggestions or feedback, please leave a comment.

    Is this for real. Why is it Art? Maybe I’m missing something, but I really didn’t like the pix. Are they used to make 3ds or digital work? Peace Marie

    It’s not art. Textures can be used in graphic design (working with Photoshop or a similar program). See sites like,, and

    Wow!! This is an amazing resource…I never knew rust can be used so beautifully..Any of these would look great as a website background…The chain one and the last two pictures are my favorites…This list shows that anything around us can be used as a resource for designing, only we need to have the observation power and the eye for the unconventional…Thanks for sharing this amazing list….
