Heya, was wondering how to get a Tortoise effect on a pickguard? Searched the forums to no avail, and I'm a lefty so it's impractical to buy one.
You could always buy some pick guard material and cut your own. I know StewMac sells it. You'd have a fun time trying to paint on tortoise shell. I'm looking at my tortoise shell guard right now and you might be able to do it with some type of swirl if you were set on painting it, but I don't know anything about doing swirls. Check the refinishing thread at the top of the forum.

Edit: I did a quick Google and found something that might help. http://www.xrestore.com/Pages/TShell.htm
