I was going to suggest object pigment(s) until I tried it and failed the
attempt.  :)
Here's what I finally did instead. Needs rescaling to be correct measurements
for a real field. I didn't consider thickness either, just wanted all parts to
show. Originally was making a pigment pattern for a flat plane anyhow. I haven't
used POV for that purpose in uncounted years, maybe somebody else has answers.
Also, you would want to think about how to go about doing real
dimensions/measurements. I chose not to use actual numbers of feet/meters for
this, only going for a likeness of the drawing you gave, otherwise I might have
done this minus the 45 degree angle first so as to have axial distances then
afterward rotate the field (if you understand my meaning).

Sorry all. Been too long since posting anything, and especially using web
interface. I was looking at the most recent digest and not paying attention to
where I was.
