    A bit like blue toothpaste you mean?

    With a bit of creative talent, you could do this in a raster program such as PSP or photoshop. Otherwise you may be able to get a 3d program to do it for you, if you don't feel comfortable creating a realistic effect.

    It's all about following the contours of the shape with areas of light, adding reflections/shadows in the right places.

    I quite like creole's avatar - I assume this is the kind of thing you are looking for.

    The exchange site you have mention above is great!

    I wonder if there's something like that for FireWorks users?

    Best Regards,
