[TUTORIAL] Creating 3D bowl in gimp

As Ali Imran points out, make sure you put the pattern on a new, tranparent layer and not on the starting "Background" layer.

going through clay ogres tutorial list to try out different things and i really liked this one, simple and such a nice result and the edge is supposed to be like that, tried for the amatuer hand crafted look dunno if i pulled it off >.< i like the bottom right the best personally ^_^

Nice bowls mike & molly! Mike your metal bowl is outstanding.
I made a chip & dip set.
Wanted this to look like an old copper bowl. Needs some verdigris in it somewhere.

I was on a quest and found this image called verdigris stone.
Here is the original image.
I cropped the image so that I had the left side of it with the ridge, and scaled it (with chain broken) so it was the same length & width. Added enough canvas to make it twice as high. Duplicated the layer, flipped one layer vertically and pulled it down (View > Snap to Canvas Edges) to the bottom and merged the layers to make a vertically seamless image.
Added enough canvas to make the image square, pulled the image all the way to the right in the canvas screen, Layers > Layer to image size, and used that to map to a sphere.
Here is an image of my finished mapping image. I added a white background so it would show well in here.
I did the same thing with the right side of the image. Cropped it off, scaled it to a square, made the canvas twice as long, duplicated, flipped, moved one layer down to the bottom, added canvas to make it square and used that.
The large bowl I used the whole image scaled to 300x300 and went through the same procedure. The ridge in the tile smoothed out. I was hoping somehow that would remain.
I was hoping that ridge would show so on a 4th bowl if I rotated it so that the ridge was horizontal. I scaled the image to 200x200, and rotated it 90 degrees. You can see the lines where the ridge was, but no 3D effect.
My four bowls. I love the largest one. It looks rough and old.

This is my favorite one of all. Really looks old and cruddy.

:) Bowls are getting better and better
you get a good idea for that texture..i see what you mean for the ridge would be cool add some thickness and roughness to the ridge, i mean without manual editing
But to have forced gimp to do a 3d results are already very good ( the bowls may well seems a render from a 3D app )
very nice also yours and you found too very interesting materials to texture the bowls

I ran bevel & emboss: Inner bevel. Chose a dark copper area for the color for the shadow and a pale blue-green shade for the gloss. Then locked the transparency on that layer and ran the pick filter. Figured that was enough. It roughed it and gave a sense of thickness to the bowl. It took me longer to write about it than doing it.
