You can watch the video below that explains the process of how to create sunglasses, or read on!
1. Download the Materials to Make your Sunglasses
When a derived product is sold, both the previous people who created the product and the ones who derived the product, make money.
To create your own sunglasses, you are going to derive from the Glasses M product. We have supplied you with 3 texture options (glasses frame, lenses, and opacity map).
After downloading the textures, you will see the following files in your computer’s “Downloads” folder.
2. Customize your Sunglasses
You are going to customize your sunglasses using Photoshop or Gimp software.
If you are not familiar with Photoshop or Gimp, no worries. Just follow the instructions and you will see how easy is to make awesome products.

Let’s customize your sunglasses!
Let’s specify the product you will base your sunglasses on.
5. Product Creation
When the Editor opens, a default avatar is displayed on your screen.
The one on the screen will be substituted with the one you have chosen.
Just a few more steps and you will see how cool your avatar looks!
Now, the “Sunglasses Frame” texture is the one you created.
The texture you selected will appear in your Materials column.
Let’s repeat the same process with the lenses texture.
Now, the Lenses texture is the one you created.
The next step consists of loading the Opacity Map.
The Opacity Map is going to define which areas of the lenses texture (the black one) are opaque, transparent, or translucent.
Now the Opacity Map is empty.
Now, the Opacity Map is the one you created.
All textures are loaded, so let’s see how your avatar looks with the sunglasses that you have designed.
Let’s save the changes done.
CONGRATULATIONS! You have derived your first accessory!
