I want to make more realistic looking rotary engraved design mockups on a copper surface for clients but can't seem to get it quite right. I might need a new approach and could definitely use some perspective.
Details: I produce mockups/new designs within my engraving software, and export them as a PDF which can then be placed within photoshop over an image of the copper item I'm going to engrave. While it gives a good representation of what the design looks like, it doesn't convey what it will look like when finally engraved onto the material.
Basically, I'm trying to get the design on the second image, looking far more like the design in the first image.
Any help would be much appreciated! Example images are below showing, A photo of a finished engraving, the image I use in photoshop:
