What are you most proud of? Finishing the "painting".

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Start fairly small, a 5" x 5" square design will take plenty of time. I would say if you can spray paint the eggshells, do so, otherwise you'll be painting by hand. Have toothpicks handy to to widen the "grout" lines (by adjusting eggshell position). Try airbrushing the eggshells for a more subtle effect.

Beautiful, reminds me of doing tactile projects w/my kids and that I enjoyed it just as much as they did. Would like to try this. Do you think Poppies would be a good subject>

Yes, Poppies would be great, but I would draw them or trace them to become familiar with the contour of their shapes first. Note, I did not develop eggshell mosaics, but I saw it in a book about mosaic materials and thought I would try it. Mosaics can be done with almost anything, but the real difference is how well they are crafted. Good luck and keep me posted:)

I know You commented on this almost three years ago, but I haven't been on craftsy for that long, so, thank-you for your comment and I hope your eggshell mosaic went well:)
