View Full Version : Help me with this gold shader...

I've been working on this shader for many hours now and would like some input. I am not satisfied with it but am not sure what to fix. Any critique is welcome, thanks.

If you want something like this: http://www.wilkinsthejeweller.co.uk/items/garnier1.jpg
Really clean. Then, take that chrome shader you have and make the Specular color a nice yellowish gold. That should do it already.

If you want something more like this: http://www.frauderringe.de/Ringe%20400x400/aischa%20xl%20gold.jpg
take your new gold shader and blur the reflections.
