Supplies you’ll need for this sea shell art project:

To make the sea shell art:

  1. First, paint your canvas using your watercolor paints. We chose a pearlescent watercolor but any kind would be fine. You could even use acrylic paint if that’s what you have on hand.
  2. Once the paint has dried, glue on your shells, sea glass, and gems.
  3. Or, glue on your shells, sea glass, and gems, and then paint the canvas (and shells).
  4. Get creative and have fun!
