Subject: egg shell mosaics
Last summer I was watching one of those TV craft shows. Mosaics out of
egg shells were being made. They were quite exquisite. I want to try one
next spring after the Easter Egg Hunt. I forget what kind of grout, if
any was used. I think it was finished with some kind of shellac. Did
anyone see that show or know anything about this?

Dear Nora,
Last year I did egg shell mosaics right after easter. I asked (with a memo
home) for shells and got a nice selection of colored easter egg shells. The
only problem I must warn you about is the INCredible stink of those who send
in shells with egg still stuck on them. Oh my! I think you could seal your
mosaics with ModgePodge. I used glue, but since I've tried the modge podge
and it works great.
