Which exact bit are you finding difficult? It's hard to help without knowing the specifics

Goto Channels windows. (Window > Channels).

Create a new channel. Select Paint Bucket tool and set it to Pattern. Select the pattern you have created earlier and fill the black area of the channel with it.

Now go back to the Layers window and select the layer with metal texture or whatever it has on.

Goto Filter > Render > Lighting Effects. As texture channel set the channel that you have created. Adjust the setting and hit OK.

Check your menu bar along the top to see if you don't accidentally have a setting such as fill opacity turned down really low, or perhaps you have a fill blend mode other than normal mode? Check this with the fill tool in use.

Maybe the pattern is pooched.

Remake the pattern to be sure.
