Engraving as of so far:

These ones are French Vanilla on top of the tekta sheet, and opal white on top of that… I like the way that looks in reflected light, but I’m not liking the transmitted light, it’s a little too yellow… which, makes it more fleshy, which is good, i think, but I think I might need to play with it to get the colours right.
