How To Make An Egg Shell Mosaic Photo Frame?

Paint a piece of old cardboard that hasn’t been used in a while with any color of acrylic paint and let it dry. Now cut the thermal sheet into four parts to make a frame. Paint the thermal sheets and adhere them to the cardboard.

Color the eggshells and crush them into tiny flakes. Now comes the tricky part: start by dabbing glue over the painted Thermacol and randomly placing the egg flakes until you achieve the mosaic appearance. Move the eggshells around with the toothpick/needle. Repeat the process on the other side of the thermal until you’ve covered the entire surface. Allow time for it to dry. After it has dried, apply a final coat of adhesive to the eggshells to seal them. Varnish can also be used to make it water-resistant. Now your frame is ready and you can add a picture at the center of the cardboard.
