1. The first thing that we need is the product to be draped. This can be literally anything - a sofa, shirt, dress.... For this example we have chosen a sofa. The important thing to remember is that when the product is draped the highlights and shadows show through (see the final draped sofa below in point 4). This means that if there is a texture on the product that you do not wish to see then the texture has to be removed (we can do this).
2. We then place a digital mesh over the sofa. This mesh needs to follow the form of the sofa so the fabric that we drape onto the product looks correct. See the final draped sofa below.
3. The item to be used to drape the product could be anything. In this example we have used a fabric. The fabric to be draped onto the sofa needs to be either big enough to cover the whole product, a colour, or If this is not the case then we need to place the fabric into repeat (we can do this too). This fabric (see below) has been placed into repeat.
4. We can now drape the sofa in as many fabrics as we wish.
