Using diffuse reflection and shadow to reveal texture.
1st example was using a glove of a light colour so that we know it will be mostly diffuse reflection we know that light reflect back with diffuse reflection as bright as it was shone on the subject. So the solution would be to skim the light across the subject at an extreme angle which will give each particle an illuminated side and a shadow side as with the previous example this could create uneven light and so move the light further away in this case.
I have decided to test this out myself. Image one you can see the tripod set up. The glove is sitting on a chair so there is a good distance from the glove to the camera. The light I held first beside the camera and second by the chair to the side of the glove. I can see the more three dimensional effect with the second image.
