Richard,

The lacquered Chin - all about serendipity really, I was just trying things out.
Basically as far as I remember, the steps were -

1. coloured glass image was already created
2. next used paths for the target lacquer areas
3. paths to selection
4. choose a foreground colour
5. stroke path with airbrush (2. Hardness 050)
6. shrink selection by 10 pixels
7. choose another foreground colour
8. stroke path with airbrush (2. Hardness 050)
9. repeat steps 6 thru 8 with another colour
10. play with blend modes for each layer
11. chisel filter - I think at 20 pixels internal for a selection covering the 3 above layers - this step really gave it the lacquered look.

Happy to send you the XCF file if you want a closer look.
