I've been trying to make a fabric material with decorative stitches and I was wondering if there was an efficient way to layer or combine materials? The goal is to use the configurator functionality to change the colours of both the fabric and the stitches individualy.
I've tried making a fabric material and using the canvas to add the stitches but in doing so I lose the diffuse map of my fabric, losing the small details and colour variation of the thread, making it look very flat.
I also tried to add a layer to the canvas with a mask for the fabric and adding the tiled diffuse map to that but it looks very blurry, even with very high reolution images.
The ideal way would be if there was a way to add the canvas material in a slot seperate from the material's diffuse colour, or a way to effectively combine those, but alas.
Is there a possible workaround for this, or might something like this be implemented in the future?
