You can get a ton of this kind of texture online, but if you need a specific color or a certain gold tone to match the other design elements, you'll need to know how to make it yourself. Today, you'll learn an easy method to make a Gold (or any other color) Glitter Background in Photoshop using nothing more than the default tools and filters.​
