I want to write a simple text on a mug, but can't figure out how, I tried using a lattice and shrink wrapping but it was all jumbled up. That was that only method I found... so i'm guessing it should be something very obvious(?)
EDIT: So the text follows the surface nicely with the curve modifier, and I found out what I messed up with lattice modifier too (thanks to JakeD), however there is a small gap between the mug and the text and it is casting a shadow. If I move it any closer the mug will hide it here and there.
I kinda wanted to avoid it and only use materials for it, but I guess they way I should do it is to put a transparent texture which contains text I assume? (or something like that)
