    In this tutorial l will explain how to create carbon fiber texture for use on your next layout, or interface. The carbon fiber look is a pretty sought after details that not many people understand how to create. It really highlights those techie layouts well and easy to produce.

    Step 5.)
    Set your foreground color to: #2E2E2E and draw these dots:

    Now continue to do this until you've matched this:

    Colors used are (from the top to bottom):
    #B7B7B7 #131313
    #595959 #2E2E2E
    #131313 #B7B7B7
    #2E2E2E #595959

    Step 6.)
    Now go to "Edit->Define Pattern"

    Name this pattern "Carbon Fiber"

    You are done with this document, you may close it. (there is no need to save it either)

    Step 7.)
    Now you're set. Whenever you'd like to use your carbon fiber pattern simply set your paint bucket (flood fill bucket) to pattern, and choose the carbon fiber patter we've just made:

    The carbon fiber texture works great with tech layouts and interfaces:
