Creating Scratches in Blender 2.81

This little tutorial came up as a request from some of the students on my Udemy course, but I add it on my YouTube channel as well, so you all can view it for free :).

How to make scratches in 2.81 using the old 2.7x method by taking the difference of Voronoi has changed a little. This because the Voronoi texture now is different.

So, I describe how you do it in 2.81 and also add a few "extra" things in there to make those scratches even nicer :). All for you that wants to play around with the Blender nodes!

My real name is Joakim Tornhill, but most people know me as "Blender Insight"... the procedural node & material guy :). I love how Blender can turn a simple sphere in to a photo realistic cherry, orange, planet or football....without using any external sources like images at all. That is amazing! However, I can do other Blender stuff as well (been at it since 2012) and share my knowledge as much as I can on YouTube at:
