    Wrapping a pattern

    AudreeF

      Hi,

       

      I've only just started the steep learning curve for Illustrator, so I'm very much still finding my way around the software.

       

      That said, I'm stuck on something and quite frustrated that I can't move any further with it and so I was hoping someone from the forum could give a little advice.

       

      I'm trying to recreate the look of a mosaic vase I have above my fireplace. I've created the vase shape using some ellipses. And I've created a pattern swatch that resembles the mosaic pattern on the vase itself.

       

      But I can't for the life of me make either the vase 3D or wrap the pattern around it in a way that would look 3D.

       

      It would be fantastic to have a little advice from some of the more expert users out there.

       

      Thanks,

       

      Audree
