Tip on creating frosted glass doors

Recommended Posts

I didn't see much online about how to create frosted glass doors so I played around for a bit and came up with something decent which I thought I would share.  CA has lots of textured glass and patterned glass, but doesn't seem to have simple frosted glass.  Here's how I did it (apologies if this is obvious)

-found a google image of frosted glass that I liked

-created a new library material called frosted glass

-adjusted the color and translucence

-checked "stretch to fit"

-changed my cabinet door to flush, and chose my new frosted glass as the material

I'm working on a bath project right now that includes a frosted glass toilet partition. I too created a new material from an image I found on google and am having trouble getting the right look in a ray-trace. What material properties did you use?

I prefer to just use Chief's core library textured materials .... most of the time one of them is close enough to use.
