Hello All,

I'm trying to figure out how to replicate the effect used in this pattern (attached). I want to create this similar look but don't know how to achieve it or where to start. A tutorial if one exists would also be helpful.

Thanks!

Where did this come from? Do you have the original image?

OK, thanks. I'm working on this...........but I can't guarantee I will be able to match the effect. I see now it's a Tie Dye.

Three or four layers maybe each layer with brush lines across with varying tones of grey on each layer apply a motion blur with the movement marker set at just off vertical maybe.

I was playing with a torn paper idea, then use one of the filters.

This seems like a good approach to start with, the torn paper idea. And yeah the idea of it being kind of tie dye will be helpful to play around with. Thanks!
I'll keep playing around with it and see how it goes.

You may be able to use the 'Clouds' filter too, as a mask....just to add a little 'randomness'.

I agree, this will probably need a few layers. Those are some good ideas, I will try to motion blur and see what other variations i can play around with. Thanks for the suggestion!

I have it this far. Time for some filter experiments, blurs, shading, etc,.
