Making a Metallic Surface

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out how to make a shiny, metallic surface. Essentially something made out of polished steel or aluminum. I noticed the metallic text tutorial but for anything other than text it looks kind of cheesy and fake. So far all my own attempts have been fruitless. Anybody have any ideas?

Could possibly work. I'll give it a try and let you guys know.

EDIT: No, didn't really work out that well. On the plus side I figued out how to make a realistic looking strand of hair (as if viewed in a microscope) :D

Another Edit:

This is kind of what I'm going for.
