Making a 3D Pretzel – Part 1 – Blender for Beginners
In this beginner’s Blender tutorial series I’ll take you through the step by step creation of a soft pretzel. In this first video we’ll be modeling everything in the scene including the pretzel, the plate, and the salt.

Watch our Blender primer series below if you’re brand new to Blender –
In the first part of this series you’ll learn about working with both curve objects and mesh objects to achieve different modeling tasks. We’ll also be using things called modifiers which help us construct complex details in our models. We’ll be using modifiers such as subdivision surface for getting extra smooth surfaces, beveling to achieve rounded corners, and solidify to give objects thickness.
We’ll also be using particle systems to randomly distribute salt on the pretzel’s surface, as well as on the plate and the table.
In the next part of this series we’ll be texturing everything and then rendering it, so stay tuned for that!
