How to turn this convex (non plannar) surface into a concave surface?

ol_loool_loo Member Posts: 15
So, with the loft tool i made this convex button which follow the curvature of the outer shell. However, i need to make this button surface (outlined) concave. Apparently this is impossible with the loft tool because "only a plannar profile is valid as normal to profile start condition".
So, how could i achieve this?

    Fill surface with a concave guide will work well.
