    lighting back and front

    i want to light my objects back and front.
    her is my pseudo-code :

    glPolygonMode(GL_FRONT_AND_BACK , GL_FILL);
    glColor4fv(color1) ;
    glColorMaterial (GL_BACK, GL_AMBIENT_AND_DIFFUSE);
    glColor4fv(color2) ;

    i don't have the desired effect. can anybody tell me why?
    moreover, do i have to specify normals again but in an opposite direction ?

    thanks ! : )

    Did you do
    - glEnable(GL_COLOR_MATERIAL)?
    - glLightModeli(GL_LIGHT_MODEL_TWO_SIDE, 1)?

    BTW, if this is the only place where you specify the material, better use glMaterial call directly instead of enabling color material.
