Seashell Pattern

In order to make a picture, you will need seashells of various sizes, shapes and colors, glue (preferably PVA or hot melt glue), a rectangular piece of cardboard, a frame. If your seashells are already washed and dried, then you can start composing the composition. Take a piece of cardboard and try to put on it the desired pattern, such as flowers or patterns. Or try to draw a sketch on paper.

If you are planning to make a picture of colored seashells, then paint the shells before sticking them on the cardboard. Acrylic paints are suitable for this. If you decide to make a seascape, then paint the shells in blue and green shades, if your picture shows flowers, then paint the shells in different shades.

Once you have decided on the pattern and prepared the shells, you can begin to create a picture. Gently stick the shells on the cardboard, and if you have any glue stains, they are recommended to be masked with beads or coarse sea sand. The color of the beads should match the color of the shells - just stick the beads where there are spots or smudges of glue.

Let the composition dry completely. Leave it for a day or even for a day. After that, you just have to insert the picture from the shells into the frame.
