    Thought I'd have a go following Ernies example. Named colours & Vectors are excellent for this type of thing :

    Hello Mr Bramhill,
    First of all let me say it is a pleasure to meet you. Over the past number of years I have watched so many of your tutorials online. Nice to finally make contact. You have done a wonderful job at mocking up the image I sent along. And Ernie also did a great job. This is just the task I was trying to figure out how to do in Xara. Well done. I am sure there were many steps involved in doing this task. It would not be fair to ask you to detail it all, but I am grateful to see it accomplished and to know it can be done. I appreciate what you have been able to accomplish. Thanks for taking an interest in this project. Sincerely, Harry Soper

    I did like the application of the Blend to profile a shape.

    @ gratitude: Thanks for your comments.
    @ Acorn: Yes, I find doing it by eye to easy to make mistakes. I place everything I want to mould inside a no fill/no stroke rectangle which also helps keep everything resized/positioned in the same manner. Xara's mould tool is very long in the tooth now and in desperate need of updating.

    Egg, I just re-"discovered" that you can nest Moulds and keep everything editable:

    Not sure if this can be achieved in Xara, but let's say I have a cylindrical shape, can I flex an image to wrap around that shape?

    It can be done in PS, but I was curious whether it could be done in Xara; even more curious how I could do it with CSS. May be there is a plug-in?

    Gary, GIMP does Map .. Map to Object, Cylinder for free.

    CSS involves slicing and 3D transforms.

    In Xara you could manually slice an image. Possibly set up Live Copies so to be able to drop another in place...
