Today I received a couple of eggish shaped ornament shells. I need to figure out if I should leave them as is, polish them, or maybe coat them with a clearcoat. The colors are close to what I wanted but slightly muted like all color prints seem to be. These have no hint of warping probably because of the shape.
Any slight groove seems to grow because of plastic shrinkage so it's not a good idea to do this. On the other hand it is lathe-able but I would be afraid of revealing any white material within the cores of the disks. Photos as taken from the shipping bags.
The second http://shpws.me/vK0W is smooth and has more potential. No nasty grooves and nice color transitions.
These might look good illuminated from within. More photos as progress pregresses!
