Smile a lefty jem 30th (swirl inside)

Hi
Juste a pics from my project with a french luthier pierrre pancracio.
It's is first real swirl.
We have made month of test to find the right paint.
This project is based on a lefty 1570L. At the beginning we don't want to make inlay (too expensive to redo the neck). But pierre try to incrustate with simply re frette. Dot inlay are original...later we will replace it with abalone.
The inscription at the end of the neck is a dedicace to my children ("Olivia")
I'll make better pics this week end.
It'f for my 30th anniversary so it's my jem 30th
