How to Make a Procedural Paper Texture in Blender

Hey Everybody! In this video I will be showing you how to create a simple procedural paper texture/material inside of Blender. This is a pretty easy process and mainly involves using the material nodes to create a bump texture for a plane. We will be using a cool trick to mix the textures themselves to create this cool effect.

I hope you guys enjoy this tutorial and learn something new.

I would also appreciate it if you guys would support me on Patreon so that I can continue to bring you guys these tutorials and help improve their quality as well.
Thanks for watching!

    Does not work with 2.80. I did exactly what was shown… The paper gets so distorted that it is goes out of the viewport. After that, the controllers will not change anymore. Either that's a bug in 2.80 or it just does not work that way anymore with 2.80

    If you could SLOW DOWN a little, the presentation would be much better. If we already KNEW how to do whatever is on your video, then the speed would not matter.

    Nice tutorial! And the result looks good; maybe I can find a lined paper texture. I'd suggest using the new principled shader instead of the diffuse and glossy combo. It does the fresnel automatically (with a little more accuracy), and I think it's better performance, if I remember correctly. I tried it, and the settings translate over nigh-perfectly. Thank you for sharing this with us 🙂
