Further experiments in Acrylics

So I learned some new things with the acrylic this week:
 that's pearl with red crystal rhinestones, and "ivory" with white.

I also sorted out the issues with the tortoiseshell supplier, and got to work with detail carving, painting, and gilding.

So we've got "ivory" with painted carving, and "tortoiseshell" with aluminum-gilded carving. Expect to see a lot more of the paisley motif in the future.  I'm absolutely fascinated with it.
