New switch plate covers

I'm working on some new designs for switch plate covers.I just think plain old covers are so boring, why not make them a feature instead of an eye sore.
I've taken a metal switch plate and covered it in Polymer clay,cured it in the oven, textured it, painted it, and antiqued it.After all that is dry I coat it in three layers of Polyurethane to protect it and make it washable.Why three? I like odd numbers.
They will be made to order and each one will be unique to the buyers decor style and custom colors.The design ideas and colors are endless.It should be a lot of fun.
This is the one I made for my office.
