Texturing a ribbon

Hey, I’m trying to model this school logo. I need someone to help me figure out how to texture the ribbon. Right now, the bottom ribbon is a mesh plane “smoothed”. The top ribbon is a curve extruded. I did them two different ways because I thought I was never going to get the curve to quit twisting on me. I’m including the reference logo so you can see what I’m trying to get.


Try experimenting with ramps with normal input, to give the ribbons that sheer, velvety effect.

No, I mean I need to get it to say “Oakland Patriots” and have the white edges and all. It’s probably some type of uv mapping. I was somehow able to do it on the middle thing but I can’t seem to figure out the best way to do it to the ribbon part.

did you convert the ribbons to a mesh first?
