Is there a good resource, guide and/or material repository somewhere for Yafaray? I've had some luck with some of the things and theory covered in this thread. The Yafaray guide has a tiny amount of information in it, in some cases not much more than is shown in the tooltips.
Many of the materials found in the Blender Open Materials Repository (Blender-Materials.org ) don't function with Yafaray correctly.
I see a lot of great textures and materials being used in the gallery (like the violin) but I'm never able to even get close to creating materials that look that good.

At tthe moment yafaray doesn't support SSS.

You can try a blend material.
So you can blend the coated glossy with a shiny diffuse. In shiny diffuse you can control translucency.

When i blend the two materials, a glossy without glossy reflection and the shinydiff with translucency, the result is too white! When i reduce the light i get a noise material. Ugly!
Could anybody show me how to do?

Glass material with 1.25 IOR and Fake Shadows enabled. I mapped a Clouds texture to the material's Normals, Reflectivity, and Displacement with 1.00 Displacement on the slider.

I used the black 50% texture on the inner part, but changed the color on it to a bright grey instead of the 50% color.

Rendering Settings (any ideas on how to streamline it without losing much quality would be great)

Pathtracing

Depth 3, Use Background, path samples 100

Raydepth 4, Shadow Depth 6

AA passes 3, samples 4, AA inc samples 2 (mitchell)
