Ok I will set the story up for this monstrosity, I used to build guitars and for inlays I used alot of mother of pearl. Well there has always been this little bit of me that wanted to work with Blue Nacre. Blue Nacre is found rarely on some mussels, its very sought after, and incredibly beautiful.
So I decided since I will never work with it, to reproduce it or at least honor its beauty.
So here is the Blue Nacre YFactor.
Nacre pronounced /ˈneɪkər/ or “NAY-kər”, also known as mother of pearl, is an organic-inorganic composite material produced by some mollusks as an inner shell layer; it is also what makes up pearls. It is very strong, resilient, and iridescent.
Custom Irridescent Purples and Blues
Irridescent Pink (used very subtle)
Example of Blue Nacre
Sorry for all the reflections but this is super duper shiny, I used a very high gloss on this one. Some red is showing from the picnic table, and other colors are reflecting as well. I will take light box pics of this one when its cured and assembled.
Oh and its for me
Thanks for looking,
