  Object Pattern (3) by using textures
#declare My_Pattern_Object =
text{ ttf "arialbd.ttf",
      "POV-Ray", 0.105, 0
      scale<0.8,1.25,1>*0.5
      rotate<0,0,20>
      translate<0.30,0.05,-0.025>
      } // end of text object -----------
//---------------------------------------
#declare Outside_Texture =
texture{ pigment{ Candy_Cane
                  scale <-1,1,1>*0.1 }
         normal { bumps 0.45 scale 0.05 }
         finish { specular 0.6 }
       } //------------------------------
#declare Inside_Texture =
texture{ Polished_Chrome
         normal { bumps 0.35 scale 0.05 }
       } //------------------------------
//---------------------------------------
object{ Round_Box(<0,0,0>,<2,1,1>,0.1,0)
   texture{
   object {
          My_Pattern_Object
          texture{ Outside_Texture}
          texture{ Inside_Texture }
       } // end pattern object
      // optional texture modifiers:
      //turbulence <0.1,0,0>
    } // end texture

  rotate <0,30,0>
  translate <-1,0.5,0>
} // end box
