Eggshell Mosaic Picture

You will need:

Egg shells
Food colouring


Wash the egg shells really well and remove as much of the membrane as you can.

Soak the egg shells at least overnight in food colouring (the longer you leave them the deeper the colours).

Dry the egg shells on kitchen paper.

Draw your picture on a large sheet of paper.

Choose one colour of egg shells and paint all the areas that you want to be that colour with glue. Stick the broken shells on.

Repeat one colour at a time until your picture is finished.
