  • Marquetry

    I'm wanting to get the effect of marquetry in a design - is this as simple as overlaying wood textures onto vector shape? sorry if this is a really simple question, i may be overcomplicating the process in my head!

    It is probably just that simple. Vary your wood sampling of course so you aren't using the same grain in every piece. Just remember that if you want it to look like real marquetry, it can't be absolutely perfect. Even machine assisted inlays have a bit of a gap here and there. When using computers to illustrate hand crafts it's often hard to remember to put in the faults.

        It's not often one runs into a pool ball salesman. That's funny.

        Most of the designers here wouldn't do their own production printing For their clients. They would take it out to be professionally printed.

        What do you want the office printer to do?...

        If you've read our rules you understand why we cannot discuss pricing on this forum
        You simply have to figure out how long it's going to take you and how much you want to be paid per hour.
