Hi,

I am new to working with both sandstone and designing for color printing.

Can someone point me to any helpful tutorials or other posts related to designing textures?

I have been investigating the following resources, which are a good place to learn how the material works and the file formats needed, but not 'designing' the texture map.

Thanks! Very Happy

It would help if we knew what programme you are using for your modeling. Zbrush, for example, allows you to "paint" on your model and then export model and texture in one file. Think of your texture file as a 2D image that is wrapped skin-tight around your entire model...
