Ark shells are plentiful along the Texas coastline and they were a favorite find when I was a young girl playing along the shore of Galveston Island.
After a crafting fail last weekend, I decided to soothe my bruised feelings with a simple no-fail project, painting some seashells pearly white.
Since natural shells are porous, I applied primer first to minimize paint absorbtion, then brushed on metallic white craft paint.
Then I made a few silvery ones too, while I had the jar of shells handy. I applied metallic silver spray paint to these and touched up one with silver glitter craft paint.
I’m envisioning a shell and pearl garland, perhaps adorning a vase of branches. Further contemplation needed. Until then, I’ll enjoy the soft glow of these pretty ark shells.
Thank you for dropping by, I appreciate your company so very much!
