These don't show up in my game. I have the CEP, I've placed the violin before trying to recolor, I even ran the game for a bit. Both the violin and the stand give me the "not designable" message. Is it showing up for everyone else?

@blockparty - Sorry I have no idea why they are not showing up for you. I downloaded, installed and double checked them. As you can see from the pictures below they are working correctly in my game. I also asked a friend to download and check them in her game, she didn't have a problem either.

Whenever you see a "Say Thanks" button show the creator you appreciate their on it.
