You need to UV map it, then its a simple photoshop paint.

thanks for the reply, gster123. i realised i need to uv mpa, but my point was how do i keep the lines parralel with the egde - i think i figured it out by using the magic wand in photoshop to select the to get the outline, then using the stroke command to get smooth lines that follow the edge of the uv map
cheers,
tony
