It has been like since 15 years since I did a DECAL on an object and cant recall how? I have an object which I want to put what will look like screen printed TEXT in one side of an object..
1) How do i do that again?

2) Can I have a TRANSPARENCY on this DECAL so its just the letters that appear to be on the object?

HI Richard smile

Layers. smile

create your shader for your model,.. go to the shader room.. View the model in the shader preview window,. then go to the top of the screen
you’ll see a set of Layer tools to create a shape layer,.. and a pointer to adjust the layer.

When you draw the layer directly onto the model in the shader preview window,. it will create a new Layer in your original shader.
so,.. you can then add a texture map and an alpha map, or you can use a PNG, or PSD which has transparency.
