So here's my workbench. I'm pretty pleased with the Galvanised metal texture I've created for it and other assets. It's a combination of Custom brushes on different layers. Firstly I lay down a rough dirt layer, not with too much contrast, then over the top of that I used a blochy brush to get the the areas of light and dark. I painted this layer solid black and white and the brush provides different tones depending on pen pressure. Then set this layer to a lower opacity. On top of that goes a bit more dirt and some scratches, depending on how worn it needs to look. The specular uses these same elements only tweaked so that it gives a higher contrast, and overall lighter to give the high specular of the metal.
