My sg_spider texture and sg_texture1 user defined presetHere

Put the sg_spider texture in your textures folder and the
Preset_UserDefinedFilter_sg_texture1 in your presets folder

The tile is shown on the background of this page

Some images have been made smaller to shorten file size

Step 1.
I have stated the colours, texture and blend modes that I used to
make my tile, but please feel free to experiment with your own.

Open a new image 300 x 300

width=300, height=300, raster background, 16 million colours, Colour=#3E777E

On the materials palette click on the foreground materials
box. In the dialogue box change the colour to #00FF00.
Put a tick in the texture box, click on the little arrow
beside the texture window to open up the list of textures
available and choose sg_spider.
Angle=341, Scale=100

iTexture=ticked, sg_spider texture, Angle=341, scale=100, colour=#00ff00

Step 2.
Go to Layers...New Raster Layer...
Flood fill with the spider texture


Go to Layers...Duplicate...then
Image...Mirror... Mirror Horizontal... (mirror in older versions)

Step 3.
In the layer palette, change the blend mode of 'raster 1' to
soft light and the blend mode of 'copy of raster 1' to exclusion.
Feel free to try the different blend modes on both layers.
Go to Layers...Merge...Merge all.


The tile has quite a nice soft look and if you like
this better than the final version, you could skip the
next step and go on to tile it seamlessly as in step 5.

Step 4.
Go to Effects...User Defined...Filter
Click on the drop down list for Settings and choose the sg_texture1 preset.
The setting are shown below if you need to put them in manually


Step 5.
Go to Effects...Image Effects...Seamless Tiling...
Use the default settings

To make the muted version of the tile, add a new raster layer,
flood fill with white (no texture), lower the opacity of the layer,
by moving the slider in the layers palette, then merging all layers.

You can resize your tiles if you want to. I left mine at the original size
