Seashell Crafting

October 14, 2016

I was inspired by seeing other shell crafting/coloring. The first time I saw them, I knew I wanted to give it a try but I also had ideas for my own version. I wanted to try alcohol ink and I also wanted to consider both sides of the shell.

materials

Materials:

  • Alcohol ink
  • shells
  • gold paint marker (love this! made by Elmers)
     

paint marker
I tried rubbing the ink on the shells but it only gave a faint coverage. (see the light green shell) I then applied the ink directly onto the shell and let it run. I knew I wanted the insides of the shells to be gold - like finding treasure. I reversed one shell for variety.

marker version
I wanted to try alcohol ink in a marker version. The colors are very similar (which I love).
The shell on the left was done with the liquid ink, and the shell on the right was done with markers.
The markers gave a bit more control of the color.

Now what to do with them?
I might make more or turn them into necklaces or possibly windchimes.
​Your thoughts?
