If you're particularly lazy and don't want to browse loads of sites looking for great textures, why not download this pack of my favourites all in a .zip file? WARNING: there are some gigantic textures in there, so it may take a while, but it's totally worth it :D

My favourite method of adding textures to an icon is finding out which layer mode the texture looks best on, adding a mask to the texture, inverting it and then using a brush to add the texture in to whichever parts of the icon it looked best. And shoqolad's brushes are REALLY good for that, they're the perfect blend of sharp definedness and blurryness and they're pretty big, too. They're how I got the milky awesome effect on
Photobucket

If you're interested in more texture/brush sources, I actually made this post a while back for harbourlight. Basically it compiles tutorials from my favourite iconmakers, but down the bottom there are links to all of my favourite texture sites.

and let's not forget that I'm still taking requests
