For Guy's name plaque I decided a log round would be cool. I started with a domed round relief then imported the bitmap (from the TEXTURE MAGIC COLLECTION)
Then I modified the oval base relief using the lettering vectors. This effectively pushed the letters (with the wood grain) up through the smooth lettering outline.
The last step was to merge (highest) the two reliefs.
As always the file was now ready for tool pathing and then to be sent to the MultiCam to be routed from 1.5" 30 lb Precision Board.
It will look even better with paint and glazes. Stay tuned...
