Unleash the nostalgic charm of old print media with our "Retro Textures" pack. With 108 high-resolution 4K textures, this collection is your gateway to infusing artwork with the soulful essence of yesteryears. From subtle vintage vibes to full-on weathered aesthetics, these textures will transform your digital creations with the click of a layer.
Effortlessly simulate the look and feel of aged paper, worn-out prints, and classic halftones. Our textures are meticulously designed to be layered, allowing endless combinations that result in unique, character-rich patterns. Whether you’re crafting a piece that whispers of the past or shouting with retro boldness, the control is at your fingertips.
How to Use: Layer these monochrome textures over your art and experiment with blend modes like Soft Light, Lighten, or Color Dodge to achieve the desired intensity. Adjust with curves to fine-tune the interplay of light and shadow. For a colored effect, simply colorize by dropping your chosen hue onto the texture layer for a seamless blend with your art’s palette.
Each texture invites you to explore, layer, and personalize – bringing a touch of the traditional printmaking charm to modern digital canvases.

Procreate 5 is here, and its amazing! You can now install a LOT of brushes at once using the new Files app in iOS 11. We recommend backing up your purchase using an iCloud account (its free), or syncing them to Files with iTunes.
First things first... USE SAFARI on iPad!
Also make sure you open the link in the full Safari app (it must be Safari, no other browser will work), as the side-loaded one that gmail/other email apps use won’t work.
Note: Brush files end in *.brushset
Once you click the file name/download button, a blue arrow in a circle should appear in the top right corner of Safari. This is the "downloads" area. Tap this icon and you should see your download appear in a list like so:
Simply tap the file and it should automatically open in Procreate. Depending on if you've performed this before, it may ask you what you want to do with the file after tapping it, in which case you would simply find the Procreate icon and send it there.
