View Full Version : Glitter material?

05 May 2006, 03:03 PM
Has anyone made a glitter material? I'm looking for a shader that has the look of lipstick, with glitter.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Like this example.

I've got pretty good results with the "mi_car_paint_phen" shader. It's contained in the Tek2Shoot shaderpack available here: (

It's for metallic carpaint, but with some tweaking you'll get any kind of metallic / glitter effect that renders ultrafast and flickerfree. Great shader that is!

Thanks Debris!

Debris, did you simply plug it into the surface port of a shader? How did you get the little flakes? I see that Flake tab, but no way to get many small paint flakes.

Look into using a procedural or other texture to drive the specularity or reflections. That should get you started. You can then layer in incedent gradients etc. for the effect you want.

Does anyone know how to get the flakes to show up?
