Seashell preparation
Crafts from shells are made with their own hands after the material is carefully prepared for work. Preparation includes several stages.

Cleaning
If the sink is dead, then it can be cleaned in the following ways:

Soak hard cover of invertebrate animals in clean water for 1 week. The liquid will dissolve on the surface of the contamination. It is recommended to change water daily. After the procedure, it is desirable to boil the material.

Shell painting
Crafts from shells with their own hands are bleached or painted. Before decorating, the sink is often treated with a primer, applying it directly to a convex solid surface, while its relief is more clearly drawn under the whitewash.

In the process of staining, various brushes will be required, starting from wide ones (for complete retouching of the mollusk) and ending with a thin tool (for drawing blotches and lines).
