I’m trying to stencil silver words on a satin ribbon, but it’s not quite working out. It’s probably something obvious, but as a newbie, Cycles nodes still turn my brain inside out.
Here’s my failed setup:
The messagealpha image is a black and white jpg that’s been mapped to the ribbon’s message area vertex group. Currently, though, the whole thing appears silver. Am I misunderstanding what “factor” does in a mix node? Am I going about this all wrong?
