Silk Screen on resin

Recommended Posts

I have some resin panels in a design mounted and backlit. I want to silk screen images on to the resin. How can I show that in my rendering . I could take an image and make an image prop but that wouldnt give the piece a sense of the transluscency (sp)

If you know resin with silk screen you will know what I am talking about. Thanks once again for any help!

I would suggest using 3d Polygons for the silk screening. If I recall correctly, that's what I used to show a historical painted sign on the face of a building that needed to show up properly in renderings. If the polys don't work, then extrude them 1/64" or something and apply whatever texture/translucency you require. Have fun-

Good day Boriqua

No, You would create a 3D polygon and apply the image.

I created a water texture in this way and it worked well instead of having the look of a solid extrude, it had the translucency it needed.
