Perfect for inlay, Luméa Uncoated Shell Veneer Sheets are thin semi-opaque flat sheets carefully crafted from our own quality Luméa New Zealand Abalone Shells. The galaxy pattern created by the tiny chips of shell give an almost 3-dimensional look to this sparkly sheet. When inlayed against a solid dark substrate such as wood, metal or plastic, the natural blues, greens, purples and pinks of the paua shell take on more depth and become more vibrant.

The uncoated finish is perfect if sanding is required after you have inlayed the sheet, and you would like to apply your own coating. The sheets can withstand a light sanding to remove any residue from glues used during the inlaying process. You can further enhance the colours by using a natural wax, urethane or resin coating on top of the veneer once it is in place.

Commonly used in marquetry and parquetry, or for embellishing furniture and musical instruments, the versatility is limited only to the imagination of the designer. Can be cut with a sharp craft knife, scissors or laser cutter.
