Applications from seashells do-it-yourself
For the manufacture of applications from seashells we need:
Materials for crafts
Since the shells are sufficient but heavy material, then on a regular sheet of paper they may not hold well. The surface for the application must be sufficiently dense and rigid. We took the canvas on the frame for application. Crafts on canvas looks very elegant, she has the appearance of a real picture. If you don’t have the canvas, you can use a sheet of cardboard for the base.

The paint should dry.
Now it's time to stick the seashells. We start to stick the largest shells. This is a fish calf.
We attach small seashells to large shells. These are fish tails.

Glue the eyes
Glue the fins from the fish small shells.
Now it's time to decorate the application with a drawing. Drawing fish red mouth. We decorate our seabed with green algae.
