Run the sketch panel of the shell. Do not have to draw by hand, you can find a suitable digital image or scan the card. In Adobe Photoshop make the image contour. When choosing a pattern, note that small parts on it should be as small as possible, because the shells themselves are very nice material. In addition, they have a certain texture that must be taken into account when making the sketch. Print the image, pre-fit it to size.

Ordinary Board process by using an emery paper so that the surface was smooth. If the shells remain bright, background a little darker, for contrast. To do this, use a dark color stain. Stain if necessary, you can replace the dark solution of potassium permanganate, which gives shades of deep red-brown to light brown.
Put picture on the Board. To do this is to use carbon paper. The stage of sketching you can skip immediately tried to make a song on the Board.
If the shell needs painting, do it before gluing them on the Board. To paint the shells you can use bright acrylic paints. Choose a color depending on the nature of the image.
