This is probably considered "cheating" by simulation purists, but one handy

texture for the object in question, in this case the fractal, in which the
ambient component of the finish is turned down really low and the diffuse
component is turned up high.  It also usually helps to use only the amount
of reflection that is necessary and no more.  Additionally, if phong is

effect.  I hope this helps.
