    I am building a prototype table that I need to replicate this pattern to make the plastics.  It doesn’t have to be exact just similar.

    I found this pattern, can this be used somehow to make the correct color or can this be recolored.

    I actually figured out how to do it last night but I will see if this version is better than mine, thanks.  The real one looks close to this but it has lighter tan shading..  I tried to add that but I think it will have to be manually done and that’s a bunch of work!

    You can use dodge on highlights with a very slight exposure and do multiple passes until you’re happy :)

    Here you go, I tried to eyeball it for a colour match, bit tricky with that photo but this is closer?

    Lighter? Darker? Dark lines lighter or darker? Tan areas lighter or darker? if you want colour gradients inside the bits then I can have a stab but it’ll be guesswork again ;)

    I dont know how close we can get it.  When i found this image and it recolored that was definitely a score for us.  If we cant get it perfect, i’m not gonna lose sleep over it for a prototype.  I hate to lose the crispness or the black lines just to add some highlights though

    I replied before I saw your reply! I think it looks pretty close without having to redraw it from scratch!

    Cool beans :)
