Creating this texture?


I've been adding texture to flat colours by creating an 'overlay' layer of grey colour then applying 'Filter - Add Noise' to creat something like this: 1510692136625.png

I can only seem to get white 'noise' as shown above.

Does anyone have any idea on how to create different colour 'noise' like the samples below?
The 'noise' specks have a gradient which adds so much texture when compared to simple white 'noise'.


Any suggestions very much appreciated!
Many thanks

Hello and welcome to PSG.

(note: I use smart objects so I can easily edit the noise levels if needed)

Two different color noise layers.
Set the top noise layers blending mode to MULTIPLY.
Add a layer mask to the top noise layer.
Use the Gradient Tool to create a gradient on the layer mask.
