Any Acrylic (Or Other Material) That Emulates Omas's Arco Celluloid?



Recommended Posts

Ahoy there. I'm wondering if there is a commercially available blank that gives a layered, multi-faceted, chatoyant look similar to that of OMAS's Arco celluloid. Admittedly I know next to nothing about blank production, but pen turning is something I'm wanting to try out eventually. I know it can't be duplicated, but I'd love to find something with the same layered effect.

 

Thanks!

That looks similar to:

Cheap Polyester (? Not sure, it isn't brittle like most polyesters) available in many, many places

Hope these help.
