Wireframe Rendering on material

In this lesson, i have a teapot with a clay texture applied. I want to render out a wireframe ontop of my clay texture... and this is how to do it.

1. Open the materials editor and lets add a new texture. NOTE: My main clay texture is already created. Find an empty slot and click on standard to change textures

2. Choose "Composite". This material will let you composite more materials ontop of other materials.

3. Drag your main Material to the Base material Slot.

4. Choose instance so that any changes we make to the Main Material will reflect on the Base slot.

5. Select Mat. 1 and lets add a new material to that slot. This will be our wire frame.

6. Add a standard material.

7. Click Wire and under Extended Parameters, you can adjust the line thickness. You will also see a preview of the material with the wire on it.

8. Apply the new Composited Material on the object.

9. Render and Check it out.
