A seamless metal texture with patinated copper sheets arranged in a herringbone pattern


A seamless metal texture with patinated copper sheets arranged in a herringbone pattern. The image represents a physical area of 2863 x 3436 mm (112.7 x 135.3 inches) in total, with each individual sheet measuring approximately 400 x 400 mm (15.7 x 15.7 inches). The joints are filled with a solid color and are 5 mm (0.2 inches) in width.

Patinated copper describes any copper product that has been treated with a chemical process to cause a natural discolouration or fading during the life of the material. Patinated copper transitions through a variety of colours and textures during this process, from bright copper to a dark brown. Ultimately, the material adopts a green hue after years of exposure. The resulting finish is used for building cladding, facades, and for internal details and finishes.

This texture is an example of a herringbone pattern. Named for its resemblance to the skeleton of the herring fish, this pattern is formed with a series of interlocking rectangles positioned perpendicular to each other. It's use in the built environment dates back to at least Roman times and remains popular in contemporary architecture for a range of applications including tiled surfaces and parquet flooring.

This image is seamless, meaning it can be tiled repeatedly for use in architectural drawings and 3D models. It can be used as a SketchUp texture, Revit material or imported into Photoshop for use in 2D illustrations.
