Old Copper material for Blender (no UV's needed) by Nikola3D Old Copper material for Blender (no UV's needed) by Nikola3D
Blend file with the material included in the DOWNLOAD.

Old Copper material that uses generated texture mapping method (no UV's needed).

I used a slightly edited version of this material for all the renders in the thumbnail. And use it all the time in my work.

Tried to make the material as user friendly as i can.

Hope this is helpful!

Im not allowed to provide the textures with the blend file. Use the links below to download the textures.

Copper Oxide - www.textures.com/download/bron… - image 1 small
Grundge texture - www.textures.com/download/grun… - image 6 medium
Scratches -  www.textures.com/download/meta… - image 1 medium

Textures in the material r fom www.textures.com/  < awesome texture site!!!
Tools: Blender 3D(Cycles render engine), Photoshop for compositing.

You can download a blend file with this material in the top right corner. From there you can break it down and see how its done.
But basic breakdown is, you have 3 separate materials, clean copper, dirty darker copper, and green oxide. With that you use edge detection as a mask to layer the different materials on top of each-other to get this result. Just look thru the nodes and you will see how it works.

Please use relative paths next time, so that we can simply put the textures in the same folder as the .blend and make it work from the opening without further handling.

Yea, thats smart, il do that for next materials. I pull my materials and textures from a sorted folder thats why it was setup like that, cos i keep reusing them and it saves space and time.

My pleasure. Glad you find it useful. Really interested in seeing you're 3D work with it! :)
When making such adaptive materials its pretty hard gating away from node spaghetti mess. :D
The frames r a life saver, when you get back to a material after some time of not using it, it gets pretty confusing even if you made the material yourself.

Absolutely agree with all that! Discovered the reroute option recently, i think its shift+lmb and it adds those little splitters for node setups. Makes it a lot more organized when paired with straight node wires instead of the squiggly ones lol. And will definitely share once I'm done! Working on a test abstract piece right now using the Hard-ops addon, and I'm sure I'll find a use for it there. Thanks again for sharing, such an awesome material!!

Sorry for the late response, been really busy with work. Yea reroute is awesome, you can clean up the node spaghetti with it so much, also the node-wrangler addon is soo good. Hard-ops is awesome,  with instant mirror and easy Boolean its such a time-saver.

Yeah its a huge time saver, if you do a lot of hard edges in your work its a must have. I'm amazed node wrangler is even an add-on, it should just be a built in feature, its just so useful. Also, no worries about the response, looking forward to whatever you upload next!

Yea, wrangler should be on by default, but they like to keep it basic as possible, so that new people dont get even more overwhelmed with blender, and its million buttons and shortcuts.

It took a lot of fiddling with the sharers to get it looking like that.
That is why i put the .blend file for download so that people can use it and don't have to waist time them selves.
