Go to 3D>Repoussé>Selected Path. Select the 4th preset known as Inflate (1). Over the Extrude choices use 0 for Depth and 1 for Scale (2). Over the Inflate choices change de Slides to Front and Back, the use 90 for the Angle and 0.4 for the Strength. After that over the Scene Settings change the Lights to Mardi Gras.
The Mardi Gras will create 3 very colourful gentle on the scene. But now let’s do some changes and apply a pleasant materials on the thing.
