This Vectric Aspire project yields a cute tissue cover for standard size cube-style tissue boxes. The side panels are made to resemble groups of small branches or twigs and the top panel has a rather pronounced “grained” pattern to exaggerate the overall country-rustic appearance.
The “twig” branches were modeled using Aspire’s two-rail sweep. Textures were made by creating thin overlay components from photos of actual branches and then combined with components made from Texture Toolpath previews. The finish on the sample is a glaze of brown acrylic paint to enhance the bark texture and top grain.
The final dimensions of this project are approximately 6 ” W x 6 ” D x 6 ” T
This free Vectric Project requires Aspire 8.0 or higher.
