First step is to save and CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN the eggshells.  You most get all the skin off of them or they will rot (yuck)
Next I broke the shells into tiny pieces and then glued them to the light switch plate cover with mod-podge.
I then added three thin coats of mod-podge to the finished piece.

Technically, this is very easy.  It just requires much patience.  I have hours and hours in this little piece.

Now I am egg shelling a free hand drawn mandala on an 8x10 canvas.  It will take quite a bit before it is finished.

It gives a very cool textured effect.  Make sure to post your next piece when you're done with it!

Please don't be offended that my response to your first Craftster post is to call you insane, because you are.  Grin But in a good way!

I love eggshell mosaic - what a great use for it! I hope you'll post your mandala when you're done. Are you dyeing the eggs for that?

I never thought about using eggshells for art.  Neat!
