Thanks and you are helping.

Paul I don’t think shading will work here. It’s about mass production and shading each piece would defeat the purpose. Good thought though.

Horst I know the color differential is too great, again I made it overly obvious to better see the effect…..............and may have hurt the process in so doing.

No need to fire up your graphics tablet, I understand exactly what you’re saying. The first one is definitely a throw away and after pencil lining in the “veneer” shadow line, the second one looks quite good for a rope in harsh sunlight.
I think that less difference in tones will make it quite realistic and even just a single straw color with the dark veneer separator may be even better and really easy.

Thanks again
