I'm looking for ideas ... I have several dozen tiles that need to look as though they're made from plastic ... they have a low triangle count. How do I render them to make them look as though they're made from plastic ... i.e. a nice sheen plus lighting phong ? ... I've tried so many ways now but without success !

To make something look like plastic, it helps if your specular is the color of the light instead of the color of the plastic.

Otherwise, phong lighting should do the trick.

If using the standard OpenGL light model, use a high specular exponent.
