Ok I saw this and this is what came to mind.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Red-Tortoise-Shell-Celluloid-Guitar-Head-Veneer-Shell-Sheet-Parts-jewelry-making-/290901395802?pt=Guitar_Accessories&hash=item43bb13095a

But It seems like you don't like to chop up animals to make things with so
this may not work.
But looks cool.
Maybe this comes in a faux version?

Love the name of this uke.

Personally, I would lean toward the lighter colored feature as I think it shows off the details of the profile better against the darker wood. I like the darker one because of the texture, but I just think it gets lost in the wood.

I love celluloid and pearloid and and tortoise shell.

And trust me John, as long as it looks good, or tastes good, I'm down. Like Dennis Leary said, "Save the dolphins, save the dolphins!" "Well what about the tuna?" "Fuck them, they taste good."

Also, LMNOP isn't bad, but XYZ will mess you up! Hahaha.

Looks like I'm going to have to be patient, not go with what's on hand, and order up some other materials for testing!

EDIT: We have some of the black pebbled ABS that you'd find on the outside of an ATA Case. Maybe I'll try that while I'm waiting for the other stuff to come in. It's a real bright black, and may provide for better contrast against the wood.

Here it is, the same pebbled ABS you find on the outside of hard instrument and ATA cases:

That is better than the other dark one you tried I think. I still lean toward the lighter one because it really pops against the wood.

Yeah, I'm still leaning towards lighter myself. Time to go scrounge for other material and see what I can't come up with. I just wish I could cut that light material without the burns. I'm repairing our cutting laser today, so hopefully that one will do the trick.

Is there no way to polish the burns off? Like you said, it does kind of give it a shadow effect and that isn't really a bad thing.

Here's a wee little moai I printed with the 3d printer that is temporarily on my desk at work. He's next to my Wendy Cevola War God. I've asked artists for their 3D designs, and am looking to print the first tiki mug that was designed in on a computer in a 3d rendering program, and then printed with a 3d printer. From there, the print will be either cleaned up, or the lines from printing will be left in, and molded. Then slipcast mugs will be poured from the mold. There's a few people that have contacted me, so we'll see what comes of it.

Hale Tiki ... I envy you having a 3D printer on your desk ... There are so many possible uses for one ... Your moai is cool and the neon green is a nice color ... I did a tutorial thread a while back showing how I made pendants in 3D programs and had them 3D printed. Working in 3D can be great fun ....

Gene, this is your forum as much as anybodys. It does not belong to one person. Do what you want.
