This product is an inlay artist dream! It is made from pure, all natural shell and is not Pearloid!!! It is about the same thickness as a sheet of a few sheets 40 lb bond paper. It is thin enough that with several coats of clear no inlay cavity is needed!!! If covered with painter's Tape (low tack) it can be cut with sharp scissors or an X-Acto knife and is perfect for creating custom headstocks or a "Tree of life" fret board designed. You can easily cut custom logo or do nearly impossible "lettering" for "Brand" names. It is flexible and a perfect for doing purfling and binding without having to "break and miter" each piece to size saving hours of production time without any loss of quality. You can also made custom rosettes and other parts without having to create an inlay cavity! Inlay pieces can be cut in a fraction of the time (and money) that it takes with full thickness inlay blanks and without ANY compromise in the quality of the finish product!!! MicroVeneer® can be easy color tinted in you home shop and Scrimshaw and other artwork can be added to the mounting side of the piece that is clearly visible through the veneer and will never wear off!!! It has all the beauty of natural shell products, because it is natural shell and even experts can not tell the veneers from full thickness blanks inlay work.

Common Uses:
Inlaying, Mosaic, Marquetry, Design Embellishments, Jewelry, Arts & Crafts, Pin Shipping, Fishing Rods & Lures, Construction, Tiles, Shower Doors, Instrument Building (Luthiers), Woodworking, Metalworking and 1000s of other uses
