Inscription pinterest

When I’m looking for some ideas, the first app I use is Pinterest. I find it very useful, especially the many tutorials from which I learned some drawning techniques.

One of my first “shell paintings” was inspired by an image found on Pinterest.

I started it during the spring 2020 lock-down, using the shells and other ornaments I had available at the time.

Here is the result!

For the base I used a recycled shelf from an old wardrobe. The frame is given by white paint and a white thread. I used a scallop shell and others of different sizes and types. To complete some clumps of a plant typical of the Valencian Community and gemstones. For the lighter objects I used liquid glue, for the heavier ones, hot silicone.

How does it look to you? Why don’t you try to make it? Send me your “artwork” in the comments.

Recycle, create and free your inner art.
