    Can I use these textures in repeat patterns?

      Yes absolutely! You’re welcome to use them flattened in your final artwork. Just a note, the textures themselves are not seamless due to them being created by real-source material, but you can definitely use them to enhance your illustration and even keep the texture if you want your final artwork on a transparent background, here’s a video that shows you how to do that (although it’s for an AquaReal Canvas, the process is the same for a Magic Canvas). Hope that helps!
