i have a question. I need to model HDPE plate material and then few products made from it (pictures lower). It shoud be a visualisation of small play ground. It doesn't have to be 100% realistic look, but it shoud be modern looking and fresh. My problem is that I don't know how to do it the best way...
My question has two parts: 1) modelling - the edge has to be curved. Is it better to only with texture (some normal map on the edge?) or shoud I model it - if so, how? Is there some function for that?
2) Texturing - how to setup the material to look it realistics? The real material has three layers - the edge shoudl be multiple colours - again is it easier to make it throug texture, or some other way?
Thanks for your help guys, I am not very skilled in Blender and now I find out that I really don't know how to handle this.
