A tutorial on making some lovely seashell magnets with Valentines Day theme has been showcased here. These magnets can quickly brighten up your mood!
How to make seashell magnets – Tutorial:
Start with a seashell of a size with which you can work with easily. Clean up the surface well.
Using a permanent marker or a glass out liner draw a suitable design of choice. I am beginning to draw an under water design here…
Here is the outline / drawing completed…
Then colored the outlines using different color markers and sketch pens. Glass colors have also been used as these give a nice three dimensional effect.
The shell after using the colors – a large part of the shell as you can see has been left as is.
A few other designs made using the same technique …
Apply a coat of clear varnish for a glossy finish. Allow the varnish to dry well – this could take a few hours.
Glue on a magnet at the back of the shell. Use a strong adhesive or superglue for gluing on the magnet – I used Fevikwik for this… and it certainly did work well.
And the magnets are ready to be cheer you up!
