How do I achieve this sponge/paint texture?

I’m trying to find an filter/texture I can use to make the same effect. Am currently using Adobe Illustrator and GIMP.

paint texture

Thanks in advance!

Answer

Since you mentioned GIMP, here’s a simple method

  1. Fill a bacgkround layer with the colour you want

  2. Create a new white layer, and apply the noise filter. Set the layer mode to Multiply

  3. Create a new transparent layer. Choose the Chalk 02 brush, set to a large size, increase the Spacing in the Tool options. Then paint to create a random texture, lower the layer opacity as required.
