I’m looking for some Mardi Gras beads or pearls prop that will lay flat.  I tried to use the pearls from All That Jazz, but I’m not smart enough to know how to tweak them so they lay flat.  :(  Anyone know where I can find some, free or for sale?

If you’re using a Windows computer, Hexagon can handle the job. Start with simple spheres, lock them together with rigging and finish with color and texture.

If your city has a pre-lent party and women won’t show you their breasts in exchange for a cheap string of beads, they shouldn’t call it Mardi Gras.

I was looking for beads that lay flat on the ground.  The person I was doing the picture has decided she didn’t want beads after all.  Thanks for the help, I might see what I can do in Hexagon. 

LOL, my daughter seems to have picked up a few strands of beads in the last few years!  I’m not asking her how she got them!

LOL, you can also just buy them in many shops in New Orleans or just catch some that are thown.  A lot of those shops are near bars by the way.

ShareCG if I recall correctly has ome resources that my help if you need to texture some beads that you make in a 3D program and Mardi Gras textures for several DAZ outfits too.
