Marble 1[edit | edit source]
There are many different marbles out there, here is an OK one found by me.
Color: Red=0 Green=0 Blue=0
Under the "Map To" tab change the color to white(Red=1 Green=1 Blue=1)
Texture Type: Marble
Marble / Alabaster[edit | edit source]
Here is a marble I made to use with a project. This one uses a perlin marble for COL and for NOR which gives both color and bump. Crucial to realistic marble of course is the subsurface scattering (SSS). I also added a bit of reflection which you can find on some marble, but usually not alabaster unless it has been very well polished.
Adding more layers[edit | edit source]
One way to make the marble look more realistic is to add more layers of the marble texture with slightly different characteristics. For instance, create another texture:
- Soft Noise
(Same settings otherwise, or add your own slight variation) You can try using a different Noise Basis, such as Original Perlin or Voronoi F3.
