I then modified this relief by adding to it 0.15″ using the flat tool
I then applied a texture bitmap from the TEXTURE MAGIC collection. This one is called ‘checkerboard squiggles’ The key here was to enlarge the bitmap enough that my 1/8″ ball nose bit fit between the lines. Then I carefully centered the pattern on the circle before I hit the apply key.
I then modified the letter outline relief using the circle vector and the dome tool with the angle at the same value as when I created the plaque relief.
After nudging the letter outline relief into position vertically we could then MERGE HIGHEST to the base relief.
