  1. Recall our recent example:

    On the Wiki: Materialsplayroom, Downloadable file:

    Add some mirrors to the walls of this example. In particular, you should have an 800 ×800 mirror on the back wall and on each side wall. You can make a mirror by creating a cube, scale it to be 800 ×800 in two of the dimensions and very thin in the other, then applying the built-in mirrorMat material to it. (6 points)

  2. Create custom materials for a pink plaster, a dark blue plastic, and a brown shiny material, and use each in a simple scene. (8 points)
