Cheers Rob! :D

@Max - Thanks for the detailed input :D - I would have to agree ref the above oxidized copper and bubinga materials I should of done better - I wasnt happy with the end result either and thats why I havent posted it on the mxm site - Thanks for those comments

I'll have another play and see what results I get - Cheers Max :wink:

Update:

Spent more time on this one - 4 Layer BSDF + Displacement

Oxidized Copper V2 (updated 18/12 due to material looking to flat in colour also enhance secondary oxidized layer (spots)

Teabag: The new materials and the improved old one's definately look better now. Your new tarnished scratched brass & copper and both good! i could give you a couple of small suggestions for those but they're not really critical for the surface to look and feel real, basically a cosmetic thing. Your new oxidized copper looks better now :) i like it that parts of it shows through the oxide on the surface, only thing there i would change is to give the copper surface which shows through slightly more reflective properties. The bubinga wood is better now, it feels more realistic and not so "simple" as it was before.

That sounds good Teabag :) ok here we go.. your copper and brass materials are both good as they are however adding a couple of roughnessmaps on other layers besides the first one will give the surface some more variation both in color and in reflectance. At the moment both your materials seem to have pretty evenly distributed specular highlights on their surface, a bunch of rough looking textures will get rid of this "problem". Take a look at some of my materials, speculars are rarely even and smooth even on pretty clean metals like chrome and such. Dirt and roughness will make the surfaces feel more realistic. Also search for real world exampleimages on Google to see how light behaves when it hits the metal.
