>But between the wrong color and the wrong size, you might as well investigate how to draw a whole new frame from scratch, it may be easier (look at "bump maps")
Thanks for your advise, this is what I want, but I am a software engineer and very new at GIMP, I don't know how to draw it, "Bump Maps"? I heard it first timeSmile

I hope the frame is example in 20px, but bars inside frame is in 10px or less, what can I do?

If the center bar is only 10+10pix, and you want to keep the same angle in the slants, that bar has to be lower than the sides so the bitmap should go from black to grey (#808080) (half the height of the sides)
I tried it, but I didn't get what I need, can you check it for me? where did I get mistake?

I follow this guide to create a curtain easily because it is very detail, if you can provide a more detail guide, I will be in very appreciationSmile

Sorry, as a new GIMP user, I am still not sure how to draw, so I have to give up to create itSad
Anyway, thanks you very much.
