Preparing a new course on how to create materials and texture in Blender. Hopefully finished in the end of this month. This is the latest addition. 12 chapters on how to create material for a lantern like this. 2 Hours hard studying for my future students and they will get a similar result hopefully :D!
Will add link and description as soon as it's finalized!
