Material Information

Click a thumbnail to open the full size image. With javascript enabled, you can also hover on a thumbnail to tile its image as the current background. Move the mouse outside the thumbnail to reset the background to the default.

Some of the PNG backgrounds have transparent elements, meaning that their appearance will change depending on what color canvas they are drawn on. Using transparency this way provides the ability to recolor the background on the fly by setting a new canvas color.

If a background does not tile fluidly, it might not be meant to. On the other hand, sometimes there are accidental seams. When in doubt, compare what it looks like with and without tessellation.

Certain adjacent backgrounds may look identical, but if you look closely you will see minor variations through the series.
