    I know there may be tutorials out there for this but likely not under the title I'm searching.

    I have a bread image on a board, and I want to play around with something I should have really done when I shot the board, but didn't think to, so now I want to try & touch it in Photoshop.

    I want the board to look like it's had flour scattered across it, or sprinkled on it. It needs to look organic, and possibly be in a spray, like it's been tossed at the board at an angle & settled organically.

    Can anyone think of something they've seen which I can adapt to create this effect?

    Thanks guys.

    I would just google "flour on cutting board" or something and get rid of the background, then clone stamp it and warp it or whatever to make it look like it covers the majority of the board and looks more natural.

    Or, get a green paper (needs to be only the size of the cutting board, really)... toss some flour on it 'til you get what you want then remove the green and add the flour layer to the cutting board. Lots of tutorials on Green Screen...

    Luck

    Green Screen. That's what I should be searching!

    Cheers :)

    Yeah, sometimes it's just figuring out what the right word is, eh? :)

    not green screen, just flour on a black sheet, flour is white, you can set the layer to screen and it will get rid of the black
