Crafts made from eggshell, made by own hands. Photos of finished hand-made articles.
One of the simplest and most accessible materials forcreativity is the usual egg shell. Chicken eggs are consumed by us in food, almost every day, and therefore this material, almost every day is at our fingertips. If you set a goal, create cute crafts from the shell, then in a very short time you can collect the necessary amount. If you approach the work done by your own hands more professionally, then it is better to use shells that have not been heat treated for crafts. The shell from the raw egg will not lose its hardness and its surface will remain smoother. If it is supposed to create an artifact such as a children's appliqué, then the shell of boiled eggs, especially Easter eggs, which are pre-painted in different colors, is quite suitable. To begin with, robots need to be properly preparednecessary material. It is necessary to take the eggshell, which we managed to collect and rinse well with warm water. Although in order to qualitatively disinfect it, it is better to prepare a boiling solution of water with soda and lower it for a while in it. After this, it must be thoroughly dried, after removing the film from the shell, which is inside. If it was painted, it should be arranged in color. Now everything is ready to make an odd thing from this material with the help of the technique "mosaic". This can be a wall panel or a man-made jewelry box, a photo frame or any other decor element that you conceived. Of additional tools and materials forwork with eggshell, you may need - tweezers, brush, PVA glue, cardboard. To clamp the shell during work pick up a wooden stick of a small size. For example, it can be such a wand that you use when doing a manicure. If the shell is not painted, and the article is not supposed to be white, you will need acrylic paints, lacquer. And, of course, the very foundation on which you will work. Making the first steps in such a creative process is better to try to make an ordinary application for the beginning. We make a pattern of the drawing, which we want to perform on a cardboard basis. Then we glue the small fragment of the conceived pattern with glue and put the pieces of the shell on top of the glue, pressing it with a wooden stick. If the pieces of shells are small, it is enough to press down quite gently, the larger pieces under the pressure of the stick themselves, cracking, will break up into small pieces. It should be ensured that the distance between the shells is approximately the same. Having completed this fragment, proceed to the next. When all work is finished, let the glue dry completely. Now you can proceed to painting the picture. In the end we cover with varnish. Thus, you can create any crafts from the shell, embodying all your fantasies in reality.
