We’ve added a new tutorial ‘Creating buttons with metal and glass‘.

This tutorial shows how to create great looking buttons with metal and glass effects using a vector graphics tool such as Inkscape.

The tutorial goes through the process of creating the button then quickly looks very simply at the optics of what is actually happening to the light, hopefully giving an idea of how important it is to understand the way light interacts with shapes and materials in real life, in order to be able to design effective graphics.
