How to Make a Realistic Metal Texture in Blender

Published on:


Achieving realistic metal can be a little bit tricky, but I will try to simplify the process of making a realistic metal texture in Blender.

Step 1: Create a new texture.


Step 2: Increased Metallic Slider

Now you can see the material turning metallic, but it still doesn’t look realistic because it has no texture to it.

Step 3: Add Bump Node and Noise Texture.

Step 4: Connect the Fac to the Hight and the Normal to the Normal.


Step 5: Increase scale and detail in noise texture

Step 6: Duplicate noise texture (Shift + D to duplicate nodes).

Step 7: Connect the noise texture’s fac to the noise texture’s vector.
