Using SU 2017(not my normal SU version) on Mac Mojave 10.14.6 how can I apply the texture image to the solid object it portrays?
The photo is a close but not exact match for the object.
I’ve read previous forum threads on applying a texture to cylindrical objects, but they don’t seem to apply to the sloping parts of the model, and when I try just to pick a ‘colour’ in Preview out of a plain part of the image, and import that as a texture, when applied it gives alternate light and dark shades of the tone as vertical stripes round the model.

Maybe it can’t be done in SU? Perhaps I need to find an off white colour instead?
But that’s hard to find in SU 2017. Colors-Named are all jumbled.
Is that fixable? It’s so long since I regularly used v2017 I’ve forgotten if this is normal!
